Firstly, our thoughts and prayers go out to all the whanau and loved ones who have been affected by cyclone Gabrielle and the devastation caused. Nga mihi aroha ki a ratou.
Thank you to all our whanau for your patience and understanding during the disruptions caused at the beginning of our school year. Although we experienced some delays in safely opening the school everyone was excited to attend and settle into the schooling routines for the year.
This year we welcome several new staff to our school. Wendy Sutherland (Director of School Operations) and Joseph Tua (Director of Student Engagement) are members of our senior leadership team. In the classroom, we welcome Caitlin Thomas and Tania Grace, and we also welcome our new Sports Coordinator Kataraina Hape and our new Gateway/StaRR coordinator Karen Martin. As time goes by, I am sure you will get to meet them all, so when you see them around the school and community say hello and make them feel welcome.
We also welcome a lot of new students spread across all year levels with our biggest cohort arriving at Year 7. During our powhiri at the beginning of the year, it was awesome to welcome all our new students, their whanau and friends and bring them into the wider whanau of Whangaroa College. We are all excited to work alongside our new students and whanau. There are many activities and events on offer at the college and I encourage all students to make the most of these opportunities. I also encourage friends and whanau to support the college in any areas you can. We are always looking for volunteers to help in our breakfast club, and coaches and managers for our sports teams. If you are keen and able to support, then please get in touch with the front office.
I look forward to catching up with you all as the year progresses. As mentioned before there is a lot on offer so keep an eye out for these newsletters and our other communication streams.
