Dear Parents and Caregivers,
A very warm welcome back to the 2021 school year. Tongariro School has started the year with a very positive vibe and children are getting back into the habit of arriving to school on time.
A reminder that teaching and learning starts at 8.45 each morning and we ask parents and caregiver/s to help to get children to school on time so that they are not missing critical learning at the prime time of the day.
I would like to share am email we have received from Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology – Taupo Campus. I simply provide it in its entirety as the words speak for themselves.
“Kia ora and Happy New Year – Alistair Penrose and I want to thank you all so much for all your support with our recruitment in the Turangi community. It is heartening to see so much passion and enthusiasm for the youth in Turangi. We are delighted to be able to report the following enrolments: 9 students enrolled in automotive engineering 14 students enrolled in carpentry - (all aged from 15-21 years) These people have been offered transport in 2 vans that staff are bringing over to Taupo each day (was on a first in first served basis) In addition to this, also from Turangi - there are: 3 students enrolled in beauty 4 students enrolled in hairdressing 4 students enrolled in business admin” This is a great achievement for our community and shows that when we all work together we can help our rangitahi on their journey to purposeful and gainful endeavours.
Let’s have a great term.
Steve Allen Principal - Tongariro School
