2018 Board of Trustee’s report
E ngā mana E ngā reo E ngā karangatanga maha Tēnā koutou katoa. As quickly approaches the end of 2018 we reflect on another busy and challenging year for our school who continue to provide all possible opportunities for students to successfully develop life-long learning skills.
At Hikurangi School we provide a well-balanced education catering for all students needs by very competent and professional teachers. We stand united with our teaching staff who have had to go on strike for better conditions for our tamariki and themselves.
My colleagues on the Board continue to successfully govern the school and along with them extend a huge thanks to the amazing staff who make this school a safe and inviting environment for our tamariki. We thank them for their commitment and huge dedication. Without them many extracurricular activities would not be possible. Kapa Haka, Netball, Basketball, Touch, Hip-hop Dance, Pacific Island Group, the Bee Crew, Market Day are among the many diverse range of activities offered by our generous staff and parent helpers.
We see parents and whanau involvement as a vital and integral part of our tamariki’s education. We can all work together to ensure Hikurangi School has the best people and the resources it requires to provide an outstanding learning environment. We appreciate the efforts of the PTA for their enduring support and encourage you to join. We also look forward to the growth of our community and school with the government’s announcement of 3 more classrooms at our school.
We experienced the sudden passing of a cherished student, Alexis Albert age 7 earlier this year. Words can’t express how saddened we are. We miss you every day. Te mamae me te pōuri nui e ngau kino nei.
No reira, me mihi mutunga ki a koutou katoa. Meri kirihimete me nga mihi o te tau hou ki a koutou katoa.
