Wiki Tahi (Week 1) - Done and Dusted!

Kia ora whānau,

What a massive first week back in Tūhono.  We were very lucky to have two new students join our hub, Abigail (from South Africa) and Caity (from Woodleigh School), along with Manas who started with us at the end of last term, who arrived from Rotorua.  As always Tūhono showed manaakitanga and welcomed them into our whānau with open arms.  It is hard joining a new classroom at this time of the year and Abigail, Caity and Manas have got involved in everything and are happy to come back each day!!


We love our Tūhono tamariki sharing their lives outside of school with us and we appreciate all the photos and videos sent by parents to help with this.  We even get to meet new family members.  Last week we had "Dinky" and "Milly" in to visit us.  They have been re-homed with the Martin whānau and were very delightful and cute.  Thanks Kaitlyn, William, Victoria and Charlotte.

The warm weather has certainly arrived, so that is why we have Term 4 as a term where hats are compulsory.  Tino pai to all of the Tūhono students who wear their hats everyday.  As we want to be as sunsmart as possible, we are strongly encouraging that students wear bucket hats to school instead of caps.  We have discussed this in class with our tamariki and they agree that caps protect your face but not your ears or your neck.  If your child does not have one, they are really cheap to buy at places like The Warehouse or Postie Plus.

Tūhono have started brainstorming ideas for what they may create to sell at our upcoming carnival.  In running with our theme of looking after our environment, we have decided that we are going to upcycle used materials.  We have acquired a big box of old records, cds and 1.5L soft drink bottles, so the students are researching unique ways of creating something new out of something old.  This project should not cost anything.  Watch this space...

We still have gaps that need to be filled to help with our stalls and activities.  Thank you to the Meyers and Lilos who replied to our previous plea.  Please (if you are not already) could you volunteer one hour of your time for this school community event that brings in a lot of money for your tamariki's education?

    Since Saturday I decided to take my training for the next few weeks into my own hands as the current training and nutrition style was a little too much. I have 15 weeks to go, so not feeling the need to be so drained so far out.
