Our Concept for Term 1 is Turangawaewae.

We are learning that ……

Turangawaewae is a place that we are connected to, that empowers us to stand tall, feel proud and know we belong.

Jesus showed love and respect for all people, from all places.

Our concept for Term 1 is Turangawaewae. Kauri whanau organised an immersion activity on Friday. A huge map of the world was drawn on the court area. Children then sat in their country of origin, or which they consider to be their turangawaewae.

Every child had coloured in a footprint and wore a sash of their whanau colour. They then placed their footstep in their country, marched around the court and together we all squeezed onto the map of New Zealand.

It was interesting to see all the different nationalities that we have in our school family.
