Tēnā koutou katoa! Kia ora!

It has been a wonderful term so far and we are very pleased with all of our tamariki who continue to show our school values. We also extend a huge thank you to all our whånau who support our many initiatives to provide our tamariki with wonderful opportunities all year round. This term brings many celebrations with our annual Whakanuia taking place towards the end of the term and our end of year prizegiving. We are getting excited as we prepare for these events and look forward to seeing our whånau in and around our kura and Marae.

2020 brings some exciting initiatives and I think this is one worth mentioning. Our school has been selected to have a FREE LUNCH for all initiative every day funded by our current Government, starting 3rd of February 2020. This means that all students at Owhata School do not have to bring morning tea OR lunch to school from 3rd February 2020. The company providing our kai is, CHAMPION TUCKSHOPS and we are lucky to have Whaea Renee Ngatai leading our kitchen team. We are looking to have 2 more whånau members join our kitchen time in a part-time capacity so if you are interested please contact callie.raureti@owhata.school.nz for more information.
