Welcome to 2019

Welcome to 2019!  

We are looking forward to a big year this year studying the National sestercentennial 250 years of the first landing of Captain Cook called Tuia - Encounters 250 and the local Te Ha Trust Commemoration activities.  We will be looking at voyaging, discovering, NZ History and the future.  We are all excited about the learning involved in this topic!

A nation is bound together not by the past, but by the stories of the past that we tell one another in the present.
