All tamariki will need to be at school by 8.45am on Wednesday.
Please, no lunch orders on this day.
Parent helpers- please make your way to Rapaki in your own vehicle.
The children will arrive at approximately 9.25am and we will walk our tamariki down to the top carpark (just above the marae) so please meet us there by 9.25am.
IF you are planning to stay the day please bring your lunch.
IF you can only stay for some of the day, please let your child's teacher know.
The powhiri (welcome) will begin at 9.30am.
After the powhiri we will split into 2 groups. One will remain at the marae and the other will make their way down to the beach. Then we will swap over.
Our waiata (song) will be E Tu Kahikatea.
Our Kaikorero (speaker) will be Steve Cooke (from Pohutukawa team).
Because our trip includes half of us spending it down at the beach, it is weather dependent. If the weather is too inclement we will let whanau know by 8am Wednesday morning.
Year 3 & 4 Visit to Rapaki Marae/ Noho Kura
These visits to Rapaki Marae will take place on 30th of November and 1st of December. Due to a variety of factors out of our control, the sleepover part of the marae will no longer go ahead.
We know that many of the children were looking forward to the sleepover part of our marae visit so we have decided instead to have a Noho Kura (sleepover at school) on the night of Friday the 4th of December.
This will involve the Year 3 and 4 students spending the night at school, having a BBQ dinner here and sleeping either in the hall or in our hubs. We will have breakfast the next day and your children will be ready to pick up by 9.30 in the morning.
We will be needing parent volunteers to help us cook a BBQ and organise dinner on the night and will send out more information about the organisation around the Noho Kura in the next week.
