  • He mihi me ngā whakaaro pai, whakaaro nui ki ngā māngai o te kura e tū āpōpō. Hei waha kōrero, hei pū kōrero ki te whakataetae manu kōrero ā rohe ki te marae o Takapuwāhia.

  • Parent/Teacher Interviews (Pō Uiui) - Parent/Teacher interviews are scheduled for Wednesday, 20th June. Please make an effort to book your hui in as soon as possible.  You must make your appointment through the tari, not with the kaiako, as to avoid any confusion. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT KURA WILL FINISH AT 1.00PM THIS DAY - This is to allow kaiako time to set up and meet with whānau for pō uiui from 2.00pm onward.  The bus to Levin will leave kura at 1.10pm.

Also note that reports will only be handed out at the parent interview - they will not be sent home!

  • $3 Hoko Kai - Wharekura tuākana are running $3 kai (lunch only) every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until the end of term two.  This could be subject to change. Wharekura will be taking orders each morning from approximately 8.30am-9.15am. Wharekura are using a cash only system so please ensure you have the cash available, as other forms of payment are not being accepted.  Wharekura have posted the menu to the Whakatupuranga Rua Mano facebook page.

  • Manu Kōrero ā Rohe - Tomorrow 13 June, Tau 9-13 will be attending the Regional Manu Kōrero competition in Porirua at Takapuwahia Marae.  Bus is leaving from Te Takere in Levin at 6.00am and leaving kura at 6.30am. At this stage, there is no return time however if we look at past years, your tamaiti could be home at 11.00pm.

  • Matariki celebration and remembrance wall - We will be having remembrance and celebration walls at our Matariki kura celebrations. We ask ( not compulsory) any whānau to send pictures of those loved ones who have passed so we can acknowledge and remember them. And those whānau who have had babies during the last year to send photos in as well to acknowledge and celebrate this time of the new year.

  • Matariki celebrations - We have our annual Matariki celebration this coming Friday 15th June. Kura will begin at 6.00am and will finish at 12.00pm  This is still a full day of kura although the times have changed to start 3 hours earlier than usual, therefore our tamariki are expected to be present and engage in one of the main kaupapa we participate in here.  More information will be sent out during the term. The kura bus will still be running, just 3 hours earlier than usual for pick ups and 3 hours earlier for drop offs.
