Principal’s Message:

Kia ora Parents, Caregivers and Whānau,

Welcome back for term 2 and the weather is certainly starting to turn cold. As is normal at Tongariro School in term 2 we move into our winter version of the school uniform. This is simply the addition of more layers from our uniform selection with the addition of more robust footwear. For terms 2 and 3 girls have tights and the designated shoes whilst boys have socks and leather shoes. If there is any doubt regarding the appropriate footwear please ring school for clarification.

We now have our sights on the upcoming annual Kapa haka festival that is held in Taupo in September. This year we have the possibility of having students performing from across the school in their respective age groups. For 2017 our senior students have the opportunity of seeking selection in the Te Kura o Hirangi senior kapa haka group who will be going on to regional competitions. Being part of this group will be by ability selection and we thank the team at Te Kura o Hirangi for allowing us the opportunity of being involved. All other areas of our school will have teams represented from within our school population for Tūwharetoa Taiopenga

If you would like to receive this newsletter via email, please let Kerry in our office know and she will put you on the email list.

Ngā mihi

Steve Allen
