Whakatau Wairua - Te Hokinga Mai

This week Kawakawa Primary School hosted a very special occasion in our Marae Tumanako.
On Thursday and Friday whanau from around the community came with photos of their loved ones to hang on the wall of our whare nui.  These photos are of our beloved past pupils and staff members of the school who have passed away, one of them being Kailah's nanny.  We celebrated this special occasion with waiata, karakia, hangi and even some yummy steam pudding.  Thank you to all our whanau who brought their beautiful photos for our Marae.

Tuna and Takakau week.

Our school has been learning about Tuna and Takakau for the past few weeks and all week the children of Kawakawa Primary have been catching Tuna and bringing them in to school to be weighed and measured.  Alyssa and her sister Talia caught this beauty together, however Alyssa was not very keen to hold the tuna for photos.  Well done girls!
