Term One 2023: Seasonal Learning and Events
As we move from Raumati | Summer into Ngahuru | Autumn, we can celebrate the changing seasons and notice tohu in the sky, awa and ngahere.

Events this term encourage us to explore and celebrate our beautiful moana, te repo (wetlands), aitanga pepeke (the insect world) and get on our bikes to improve the health of our community and te taiao.
