Mōrena Atawhai whānau, 

Hope you’re all having a good weekend. We welcomed Viren and his family to Atawhai this week and the children have shown so many of our RSS values (making me very proud), especially Manaakitanga, Kotahitanga, & Whakawhanaungatanga. We’re enjoying getting to know Viren and teaching him all about RSS life.

Te Kupu O Te Wiki: Whutupōro – Rugby football. No spoilers in case you haven’t caught the Ireland vs. NZ replay from last night yet! All I’ll say is it’s well worth a watch. 

Pānui for Week 2:

  • Monday – A reminder that Bridget is teaching in Atawhai tomorrow
  • Thursday – I’m off-site on Thursday at a Kāhui Ako network day. My relief teacher is Faye – I know the kids will enjoy their day with her and take this opportunity to show Ngākau Tapatahi.

That’s it from me! Short and sweet this week. Enjoy a couple of photos from our week below.

Have a restful Sunday. Hei apōpō,
