Pukeko and Kea update from the 4th - 11 July 2019
We are still working towards our Matariki celebration on Thursday the 25th, more details to follow on this. The Pukeko whānau were gifted some fresh ika from Finn and Mia’s whānau and the tamariki enjoyed sharing the kai. The tamariki helped to make a smoker, using recycled materials and then fried and made raw Ika. We all partook in eating the kai and were very spoilt to have the ika perpared in so many ways.
The Kea whānau have been busy planting vegetables and making good use of our outdoor environment. We have also been working with our manaakitanga planning and the tamariki have been showing self love attributes and interests. Whilst the weather has been cooler and we have had some rain, we are finding the tamariki have been using the outside environment and therefore are finding they are needing to change their clothing often. If they are able to come with at least three changes of clothing we would really appreciate it! There are a few of our tamariki transitioning to School and some transitioning from the Pohutukawa room to the Kea whānau. This is an exciting time for all. Enjoy the pictures attached and have a wonderful weekend.

Our update for the Pukeko and Keas... firstly apologies for the delay in our update...
It has been a very busy time for all, our tamariki have been focusing on our upcoming Matariki celebration, on July 25th so please keep this date free and more details will follow... There has been many wonderful creations made in the Pukeko area, relating to the underwater world and much learning has been done by tamariki and kaiako alike... Our Kea area is still focused on manaakitanga and how this also relates to Matariki, we have been celebrating our tamariki with whanaungatanga and working on our treaty concepts. There is a lot of beautiful artwork up on the walls in our Tui room, so please take time to have a look around and enjoy what creative minds can accomplish. The weather has been very changeable and we would like to ask that at least three changes of clothing be provided daily for our tamariki at this time of the year. Please enjoy the accompanying photos and have a great afternoon...
