We have continued work on the bicultural plans this year. A meeting with parents was held during term one in which we discussed Ka Hikitia, the Maori Education Strategy, bicultural policies, and plans for community events such as a Matariki celebration and the creation of a Waharoa (gateway) at the school’s Hamilton Road entrance.
We plan to spend the first hour of the upcoming BOT meeting on Monday discussing this work with the Board of Trustees, and as usual, the invitation is open to everyone. It will be in the staff room between 7 - 8pm, Monday 19 May.
