08 May Whanau Hui
It was great to see record numbers of whanau and school staff at Whanau Hui on Tuesday 20th March. This term we were treated to a pot luck dinner, which saw the great skills of our whanau come out. Mr Thur Borren, HOF of Maths, spoke about why he is passionate about Maori Achievement and his goals for his family. Mr Dave Corner, spoke about how important student voice is, in and out of the classroom. Mrs Pearl Sidwell (Academic mentor for Maori and Pasifika students) presented overall NCEA success and achievement of Maori students in Years 11-13. We also ran some mix and mingle activities to help us get to know each other. This hui was completely student run and organised. Many thanks to the students in the Maori Leadership team. We look forward to meeting more parents, teachers and students at the next whanau hui in term 2.
