Kia ora o te whānau,
Our wonderful Tawhai Kura gathered under the whareruruhau (canopy) this fine Autumn morning for our second Mihi Whakatau for 2023.
The manuhiri (new students and staff, Kaiako Fiona Burney and Tania Singh) were guided in by Year 6 ākonga, Aysha & Lucy.
Mr Whiteman gave a whaikōrero on behalf of the tengata whenua and Mr McGarry spoke on behalf of the manuhuri..
On conclusion of the mihi Whakatau, instead of a hongi and a handshake, it was the ‘bumping of elbows’!
Acting Tumuaki Mrs Boese gave a very warm welcome to our new Tawhai whanau & Kaiako.
After hearing the kura waiata the manuhuri were then invited to share some kai and coffee and a korero in the staffroom.
