Korero from Mr. Stiles (Principal / Tumuaki)

Ténå Koutou Katoa,

Ōwhata endured a very sad, tough start to Term 2. Infact, we are still in a phase of working through Matua Shaun’s passing and pulling together ensure the wellbeing of our staff and tamariki. I want to thank all of our staff, whānau and tamariki for their huge support and manaakitanga over this time. Our thoughts continue to be with Aunty Di and Shaun’s whānau.

We have made some changes to our staffing. I would like to inform you that Whaea Callie Raureti will now be taking on the role as Team Leader for Iriirikapua (rumaki unit) and will continue in the role of Acting Associate Principal. Whaea Callie continues in the role of SENCo and Across-Cluster Teacher for the Eastern Rotorua Kāhui Ako. Whaea Emma Coleman is taking over the role of Junior Team Leader and will also continue in her roles of Maths Specialist Teacher, Within-School Teacher for the Eastern Rotorua Kāhui Ako and Data Literacy Coordinator.

Ka kite anō, Arohanui!

Bob Stiles.
