Whaia te Matauranga kia tuohu koe me he maunga teitei
He wehi ki te Runga Rawa. Kia whakapaingia tona ingoa tapu i nga wa katoa. Ka mahara hoki o tatou tini aitua, tini mate! Haere Haere Moe Mai Ra! Koutou kua ngaro atu kia koutou. Kia tatou nga waihotanga o ratou ma, Tena Koutou e rau Rangatira ma. He mihi nui tenei kia tatou katoa o Nga Puna o Waiorea; Tena koutou e nga Matua, e nga Whaea, Rau Rangatira ma! Tena Tatou Katoa!
Kia Ora Whanau

Waka Ama

Rotorua Trip Cancelled.
In consultation with both Boys and Girls Waka Ama coaches the decision has been made to cancel our trip to Rotorua. This is due to the lack of practice time both teams would have been able to get prior to our departure, whether that be because students have been ill or have had other commitments.

What we will look to do is still have some kind of practice schedule and participate in another regatta later in the year. I will keep you all posted on the details.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate in contacting me on Monday’s, Thursday’s or Friday’s.


Permission slips will be sent home today outlining the tournament details for this week and the cost. T-Shirts have been ordered and your tamariki will receive these on Wednesday.

Boys Uniform – Rumaki softball T-Shirt, Pants will be provided on the day, Sandshoes.

Girls Uniform - Rumaki Softball T-Shirt, Black shorts or Black Tracksuit pants (Girls need to provide their own), Sandshoes.
