If your tamariki or rangatahi are interested in taking part in the Puketeraki Marae visits this month, they can pick up a permission slip from the school office. More information can also be found here...

Our school is aligned with three other area schools in the southern region (Lawrence, Maniototo and Roxburgh) in a group known as a Kāhui Ako or Community of Learning. This is primarily for teacher networking and shared professional learning.  We also aim to build student connections. This year, post-Covid, we are finally able to offer our second Kāhui Ako marae days at Puketeraki Marae at Karitane.

This is the most central marae to our four schools. Each kura will send 20 students on each of the days. Students will meet and interact with students from other area schools as they learn about marae protocol and take part in a range of cultural activities. 

Students who identify as Māori are being given this opportunity in the first instance and will be given permission slips this week. These need to be returned to the office by November 8th to secure a place. Names of other interested students can be added to a waiting list at the office.

DAY ONE: Tuesday 15th November - Years 7-13
DAY TWO: Tuesday 22nd November - Y3-7

We will take Y7-8 students either day depending on the numbers. Students will be informed. We expect that only a few Y11-13 students will be able to attend due to exams. Apologies as these were the only dates available.

The cost will be covered by Kāhui Ako funds. A $10 koha towards transport is requested.
