Kia ora Whānau, 

Thank you for the response regarding our casual Vacancies that have become available due to changes in the parent reps on the board.  We would like to firstly take this opportunity to thank both Whaea Azaria and Whaea Ulai for their standing to represent on our board.  We know both Whaea's will continue supporting our kura in different ways and in this, an opportunity has arisen to fill two parent rep spaces on the board.

The board have considered all options (please refer to the flowchart attached) and have decided to hold a by-election.  This process has been and will continue to be in consult with NZSTA.

Once the timelines have been confirmed, expect nomination forms to be distributed (most likely early in term 2 - tbc).

Introducing our new mural by Matua Rick Fisher

Our 4 manu represent the hapū our kura is split into for all of our whole school activities and challenges. All manu are on the lookout and hunt for kai representing a hunger for education and learning. The brown koru represents Tānemahuta and the 3 baskets of knowledge. The blue koru represents our connection to Tikapa and its significance to our place. The white lines throughout represent the waves in learning and life. The green koru represents our connection to our maunga and the white lines throughout depict our awa that surround us. The Unaunahi designs near the top and bottom represent the significance of Ngāti Maru; our Mana Whenua. The harakeke speaks to the natural resources at the heart of learning and the kowhai tree speaks of the hauora of our ngahere.

Ngā mihi mahana ki a Matua Rick.
