Welcome to Te Kura-ā-Iwi o Whakatupuranga Rua Mano School
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 2019! 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. Please see the event calendar for our wātaka.
Ngā manaakitanga o te runga rawa ki a tātou koutou
