Pouhere

Following the loss of our Aunty Peggy last week, on Saturday we lost another of our Mareikura, Whaea Wikitoria Wright, the 93-year-old wife of Ross Rawson Wright our 10th Academy Intake.

As we did last week, the Academy and staff traveled to Waikaretu marae, on the Pouto peninsula, to pay our respects.

Paenuku

Ko te kaupapa mō tēnei wahanga whakamutunga ko Tangaroa. Nō reira ka tukana ngā kōrero ō tēna ō tēna ō mātou mō ngā kaupapa e pā ana ki te ruku, kohi me te kai kina.

Paetata/Paetawhiti

  • The first two weeks back ākonga have been exploring the mangrove environment around the Hatea.

  • Four of our girls represented Northland at the New Zealand U13 Regional Basketball Tournament in Auckland.

Paerangi

  • These final weeks are a crucial time for our students to secure the credits they need to pass their NCEA. The right attitude is the key to success. The teachers and staff are here to support you.
  • Remember to maintain uniform standards as it contributes to a positive school environment and helps foster self-discipline and responsibility.
  • IronMaori Tamaki is scheduled for Saturday, December 2nd and we are taking two teams this year.

Whānau, please note

  • Our kura has high expectations of ourselves and ākonga, therefore, we need to attend consistently, be awake, follow the hygiene and dress standards, and be well-rounded in our hauora.
  • Healthy kai (provided) and Wai Māori are the only acceptable kai allowed at TKW. Please ensure that your tamariki has a clean and named water bottle with them each day.

Navigating our Own Futures

A group of year 13 ākonga that were interested in studying next year at the University of Otago and also the Queenstown Resort College, paid a visit to the region to look at study options. A big mihi to Frank Edwards and his team from Te Huka Mātauraka for their manaakitanga on campus and also to our kura and Academy graduates currently studying at Otago that hosted our ākonga for the night – Harley, Honehau, Mana, Shane and Kauri. Thanks boys, even though it cost us your weight in KFC! As part of transitioning our senior ākonga into tertiary study we have also made education trips to Queenstown Resort College in Paihia, Auckland University, AUT and Waikato University in Hamilton.

A Time To Celebrate

Ngā mihi mahana mo te tau hou Māori!

As we acknowledge the rise of Matariki on the horizon, we remember that in the old days the constellation was important for navigation and timing of the seasons. Nowadays it’s a time to celebrate and to prepare the ground for the coming year, so it’s a good time to take stock of what we have achieved and to look ahead.
