Kia ora koutou ma,
for making our last Te Reo day for 2008 a great success. I would like to thank our dedicated tutors Taura & Deitre Roundtree, our fabulous teacher aides
Puhi Tuki & Ra Grace for their support (awhi) over the year, kia ora korua. To the ‘tauke’ parents, who made it along to support, to cook & enjoy the fruits of 2008.
Ngaa mihi ki a koutou katoa.
Last but not least, to our awesome tamariki who made it all possible, it is so amazing to witness the degree of improvement not only in your ‘reo’, but also in your kapahaka, & tikanga maaori. To those Year 6 leavers you will be dearly missed at Owairaka, remember to come & visit us in the new year.
To our remaining whanau members & those looking to join the whanau o Wairaka, nau mai, haere mai ki te ako ngaa reo o ta tatou tupuna.
P.S. We look forward to seeing you all for PACIFIKA in MARCH 09. We’ll keep you posted.
