We began singing our national anthem as a school, setting the tone for an incredible assembly. Our Kapa Haka Whakataetae group's performance was outstanding!
Mr. Walker let us know that our Kai Tiaki Tama and Kai Tiaki Kotiro will be announced in Term 1 of 2024 - stay tuned for that! Following this, we dived into our Values Awards, first with Rimu, Tōtara, Kōwhai, and then Kauri. The complete list of winners will be in our End of Year newsletter tomorrow!
A very special Values Award was presented to the Judd family for their remarkable display of our school values throughout. Tōtara Kapa Haka graced us with their beautiful waiata performances before we proudly awarded our 2023 school trophies! Stay tuned for the winners' list in tomorrow's newsletter!
Today was also about farewells as we bid goodbye to some incredible staff members - Nicole Perry, Jay Lane, Shaina Moratti, Elle Johns, and Principal Ngatai Walker. They were sent off with a powerful Haka!
And for the big reveal... Kākāpō took home the win for the Term 4 Student of the Day tickets! Congratulations! Tomorrow, we'll be awarding our Student of the Day prizes at our final school get together in the quad.
What a fantastic way to close the year! Stay tuned for our End of Year newsletter for the complete roundup of today's happenings.
