He kupu nā te Tumuaki:

 Kia ora tātou e te whānau me ngā tū āhuatanga o te wā, otira ko te tau hou nei. E whakamiha atu ana ki a tātou . Nau mai ki te tau 2017! Ka mahara atu ki te hunga kua ngaro atu ki tua, otira ki te whānau kua pania mai e te ringa o aituā. Haere, e hoki ki te kāinga o te tangata, te huinga mai o te hunga mataipō. Kua oti atu e! Tātou, ngā mahuetanga iho tihei mauri ora ki a tātou katoa.

I hope all has been well. A big year is expected. I have attached the wātaka ā tau 2017.

Ngā manaakitanga o te Runga Rawa ki a tātou koutou

Nāku nei
