Term 2: Whānau Day is planned for Tuesday 4th July 2017, Holy Cross School Hall.
Our whānau day held once a term is a wonderful time and initiative that supports our Māori children at Holy Cross Catholic School. Our hope is to build a partnership based on understanding and respect between teachers, parents, whānau, hapū, and iwi that will support all Māori students to achieve success as Māori. Strengthening the self-identity and self-esteem of students who may need additional support to learn is a central theme that we are exploring this year through pepeha.
The attached link will take you to our resources that we are using for the day. We look forward to you joining your child, moko on the day or sharing this with them prior to whānau day.
