We have our final Whānau Group hui for the year this week on 6th December at 6pm.

Our meetings are friendly, relaxed and fun, and open to all, so nau mai haere mai/welcome. We start with karakia/ incantation, discuss upcoming events and goals, share kai/food, and we learn waiata/song. The group operates to influence and support kaupapa Māori at St Martins School – adding to what’s already happening and fostering new initiatives. We support each other to broaden our knowledge of tikanga and te reo. Most importantly we exist to support our tamariki in the culture. Please note, joining the whanau group is open to everyone at St Martins school.

We are meeting at a whanau member’s house, if you’re interested in coming along to join, please email Michele Stephens in the office for details. micheles@stmartins.school.nz

As this is the final hui for the year, we will be farewelling some whanau as their tamariki are leaving the kura.

Ngā mihi nui
