Kapahaka

We were so privileged this year to have Al and Kari to assist with Kapahaka. Kari is mum to two of our students and has given her time to us to teach poi and waiata.
Al has led with his typical humour and determination to make a difference for children. He gives a lot of volunteer time to our school and the staff and children love him. I have to say he is a bit cheeky  and doesn't seem to realise how important I am.! Shirley Haynes is fluent in te reo and has been a fantastic  teacher support for them.


Al just seems to have an endless source of energy and goodwill. Try as we might we just can't wear him out and he keeps coming back to work with the students in kapahaka, Adventure Programme and Touch Rugby.

There are so many factors that contribute to a wonderful school but mostly it comes down to the people. We do have the best resources but without the volunteers, board of trustees, mums and dads, teachers and support staff we would be no different from any other school. And by gum we are awesome.
