Whānau hui

The whānau hui are an opportunity for our Māori students and whānau to meet each other and the staff at our school.

Hui are normally held in Term 1, in Term 2 for Mataariki, and again in Term 4.

Fish’n chips meets Kiorahi

Our first whanau hui was held on a lovely afternoon on the school field outside the whare. About twenty families, and seventy people came to celebrate the beginning of the year together, meet each other and share kai.

Throughout the evening games were played and lead by students.

There were also space and equipment, such as balls and hula-hoops provided for the younger kids who came along with their families. It was a great event for everyone to get connected to others within the school community and our all-time favourite sharing FOOD and company!
