Kōrero o te Tumuaki:

Kia ora koutou, Ōwhata whānau – Matua Bob here. It has been an awesome 3 weeks back
at school and we welcome new tamariki and whānau who have joined us. I have been to
several classes and noticed how well our tamariki are settling in and enjoying rich learning
experiences. Ka rawe, koutou katoa!
Thank you for your awesome support with our alert level 2 procedures – we know these
times can raise some concern, that’s to be expected, so I just wanted to say that we are all
doing a great job of ensuring our tamariki are at the forefront of our decision making and
we will continue to uphold good hygiene practices. Please, do not send your tamaiti/tamariki
to school if they are sick, instead, call the Healthline for advice and/or our Piripoho Nurse on
I would like to thank all of our staff who continue to make Ōwhata School a great place to
be and learn. A special mention to our middle school for running an outstanding online
assembly this week, and to Room 14 who we feature this week.
