Kia ora whanau, I had the best day yesterday travelling down to Waikanae with our Year 5 and 6 students for the first day of camp.   The children, parents and teachers had a great first day settling into El Rancho and the first round of activities.  It was again heartwarming to see our students trying new things, showing wairua (spirit and determination) and rekareka (fun and enjoyment) as they moved around the activities.  Nick was down at El Rancho today and Troy joins the team tomorrow.  I can’t wait to hear how the rest of the week goes and see everyone back at school.  Enjoy the rest of your week.
