Nau mai haere mai – Welcome to Te Moana.

Introduction Newsletter – Whaea Ma

Class Newsletter Week 1 – Te Moana Class Newsletter updated 2016

The students of Te Moana have hit the ground running, with a new learning environment new and known expectations and also a new kaiako. We are going through our classroom processes and procedures, and putting our hands in to develop our classroom treaty. We have learnt  AKONGA – AE and also about HAPPY Face and SAD Face and a little more about our new enthusiastic always singing kaiako Whaea Ma.

ALL HANDS IN – Our first classroom art piece together (picture to follow)



KARAKIA – Each student of Te Moana and Glenbrook school learns our school karakia and every morning the students of Te Moana recite the karakia to begin our day.

Karakia to be posted shortly.

MIHI – Students of Te Moana and Glenbrook school write their own mihi or adopt an area where they live. Every student in Te Moana have worked on their mihi and are now preparing to publish. Their mihi will be displayed in our classroom shortly. Students will take turns to recite their mihi each morning. Students keep an eye out on who will be next via the teacher board.
