A warm welcome at our Term 1 Pōwhiri

A very warm welcome to all our new students, their families and our new teachers. It was a pleasure to officially welcome you to our school on Thursday morning at our Term 1 Pōwhiri.


A big thank you to Maria, our Maori Leader and teacher in Manaia (New Entrants), who organises this event every term, and thanks also to our wonderful kapa haka team, Nathan (teacher in Pātangatanga) who spoke on behalf of our school, and Tim (our new teacher in Korimako) who spoke on behalf of our newcomers.

We wish all of you a wonderful start to your journey with us at Island Bay School!
