Kia Ora and Welcome to Roslyn School
We are looking forward to Term 2 and can't wait to share how awesome we are at Kapa Haka and how we are improving in using Te Reo at School.
We have two Kapa Haka Roopu in our school, Ngā Tupuranga (Senior Group Years 4-8) and Ngā Tipuranga (Junior Group Years 1-3) The times we practice at school are as follows:
Ngā Tupuranga - Thursday 11.30am - 1.00pm in the School Hall
Ngā Tipuranga - Wednesday 1.00pm - 2.00pm in the School Hall
We also have Whānau Hui at least once a term to share data, to gather ideas for next steps in supporting our Maori Community and Students, learn about different ways we can support our tāmariki and whānau. It's a great way to meet and greet our families and to build positive relationships.
We have gathered a great group of parents together in our whānau too who are keen to support us with fundraising for 'things Māori'. This group will be known as Te Ohu Mātua. They may meet a couple of times during the term when organising fundraisers etc in addition to our Whānau Hui.
This year our focus will be on fundraising for some Kākahu (Kapa Haka uniforms) for Ngā Tipuranga and to add to the Kākahu for Ngā Tupuranga, the making of poi and other accessories/adornment to support our Kapa Haka groups especially with Te Pae Tamariki coming up later in the Term.
