Kia ora koutou,
Ngā mihi nui ki a tatou.
Elections are over, and I want to thank everyone for their involvement voting. We had double the number of voters this year, when compared to the last election three years ago.
Last Monday was our first Board of Trustees meeting as a reelected board, and we can see that the new team are going to work well together.
Our first action was to thank our outgoing board members, Elizabeth Mati and Brajesh Padalia, for their important contribution during their time on the board. Liz played a key role in organising the new school uniforms and in appointing our new principal, and her legacy is visible when the children arrive at school each day smartly dressed and ready to learn.
We had the pleasure of welcoming the newly elected Hainoame Fulivai to the existing board of David Grant, Jenny Joe, Dean Spittle and Paia Terepo; and David Grant was reelected chairperson before continuing the meeting.
We have a busy workload for the remainder of the term, but are very proud of what has been accomplished at the school over the last six months.
Until next time.
Whakahoahoa, Akonga, Kaitiaki
