Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa,

Welcome back. Term 4 is upon us.

This year has been a bit of a rollercoaster but we have managed to work together to get through it.

Our learning focus this term is Tu Rangatira which is about being a leader. There are lots of different ways that our tamariki show and develop themselves as a leader. Leadership looks different in each other – we are all leaders in our own way.

We are all looking forward to another great term of working together.
