Introducing the Kaiarataki Room.

Kia Ora Friends and Whānau,

We have some very exciting news to share.  We would like to introduce Whaea Hanna who will be the Lead Teacher of our transition to school room.  Whaea Hanna and Whaea Puhi will be working alongside the tamariki in this room which has a beautiful new name.

The rooms new name is the Kaiarataki room.  The prefix kai means someone who carries out an action.  A Kaiarataki is a person, group or being that acts as a carer, guardian, protector There is a saying; 'it takes many strands to make a rope strong'. Kaiarataki is one of those strands."

The Kaiarataki room is where the children alongside their kaiako will learn and develop their social competency skills as they prepare for their next journey to Big school.  Most important of all the children will have lots of fun whilst learning.

We can't wait to see the tamariki in their bubble of 10 on Monday as Whaea Hanna and Whaea Puhi introduce them to their new room.
