Falling leaves and the array of colours represent changing times.  It is the transition from one season to another, much the same as the tamariki will experience on their return to kura.

It is times like this when we seek wisdom, peace and a wholeness.  As the tamariki rebuild foundations in their classes with their Teachers and friends, the EarthEd programme will bring them opportunities to reconnect with the whenua and the environment which many have discovered the secrets and te taonga through their time at home.

We will share, explore and learn to use our senses and should the weather god (tawhirimatea) permit us, bury our toes in the sand, rub the bark of trees, feel the trickle of water and embrace the special place we live in.

Tēnā koutou and welcome back.  I have lots of exciting learning planned for us this term despite the winter almost upon us.  It just means we will need to dress warmer and bring our jackets.  Keep your eyes out for notices advising of trips and requests for help.  I am always super grateful to those whanau that can support and we wouldn’t be able to do it without you.  I will use this page also to advise of upcoming events and reminders.

I wish everyone a great term and I look forward to seeing lots of smiling faces and hearing all your amazing discoveries.
