Here at Tainui Full Primary School we love to celebrate our tamariki and their success in the classroom. Here are some of our award recipients from the past few weeks.

Ka mau te wehi tamariki mā.

Onwards and Upwards!

What’s Been Happening In Our Classroom’s Take A Look

Room 5’s theme for this term has been based around Kaitiakitanga. Kaitiakitanga has been described as guardianship or protection leading us to focus on our Māori Guardians. Tamariki were encouraged to take responsibility in being a Kaitiaki themselves by caring for rivers, native forest, and birds. From Room 5 to you all be kind and be safe.

Room 6

This term has been amazing with lots of learning and fun in Room 6 we are looking forward to a great term 2.

A programme designed to teach our rangatahi about important life skills needed while navigating their way through life. This term the focus is resilience and the importance of never giving up.

Te Rauawa CC2 

We really like being in CC2 because all our teachers help us and push us to do ur best all the time we really enjoy doing sketching after lunch it helps settle our brains 🙂

Te Tauihu 2

The past few week Matua Crispian & Mrs Hooper have been teaching the children from TT2 about the life cycle of a butterfly, now what better way to do that than to show them in real time 🙂 The kids have been amazed by the different stages of the cycle & we are hoping that the butterflies hatch before we go on holiday.

Ngā Pēpī Manu-Transition to School

Kia ora, Kia Orana Talofa lava & greetings whānau,

Our Ngā Pēpī Manu programme supports your tamariki during their transition to primary school life. Every child adapts differently when finding a sense of belonging in new environments, all who are involved should make this a positive experience. We will work together to create a plan and timetable that will suit the needs of the child and family.

Our programme will run Monday to Thursday from 9am-1pm. The number of visits we recommend before starting school is six weeks. In the first three weeks visits will be two times a week and the last three weeks, visits will be three times a week. If there is a need for more visits to support the transition, that can be arranged. We look forward to meeting with you and working together to grow competent and confident children for our future.

Kia manuia
