Rotokawa School


Week 11, Term 1 - 2019

Kia ora whanau, last week of school and I am wondering where the term went. It has been a fantastic start to 2019 with a lot of things going on within our school and the community. Our learning journey for our tamariki has included a lot of local stories and class visits to some of our very own prestigious landmarks of Rotorua. Our Kahui Ako is going strong and all the schools within in our cluster Lynmore Primary, Owhata Primary, Mokoia Intermediate and Rotorua Lakes High School are beginning to establish a great learning pathway for the tamariki of the Rotorua East region. We have had some excellent results in the sporting arena across the school and our school events have been well attended by our whanau and the local community. We want to continue this journey throughout the year and the whanau support that we have had this term. Have a great holiday with your tamariki and we look forward to seeing you all in term 2!!!
