Invitation to Whānau Rōpū Hui

Tēnā koutou e te whānau,

We would like to welcome you to our first Whānau Rōpū hui of 2021. The hui will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. on Wednesday, 30th  June, in the Kōwhai Hub

The hui will coincide with Matariki, a time of renewal and celebration in Aotearoa New Zealand. We are going to come together to connect, celebrate and learn. 

A hangi option will be available on the night. The kai will be pre-order only and available for collection part way through the evening. There will be a vegetarian option as well.  Ordering information will come out shortly. 

Our Whānau Rōpū hui aims to:

  • welcome both Māori and non-Māori parents and whānau

  • establish and strengthen whānau connections

  • support and encourage Te Ao Māori at Beckenham Te Kura o Pūroto

  • promote student awareness and pride in culture, heritage and identity

  • encourage collaboration and sharing of ideas between home and school

Nau mai haere mai! Come along, get to know other tamariki and whānau, enjoy some kai, and get involved in this important aspect of our kura. Come to the staff room first and get a cup of tea to bring over to the Kōwhai hub if you would like. 

Ngā manaakitanga noho ora mai,

The Te Ao Māori Curriculum Team
