Our new Board of Trustees at Te Kura O Waima

On behalf of the BOT at Te Kura O Waima I would like to congratulate the following members of our school community on their election onto our BOT at Waima Kura and their recent appointments to the various portfolios:

Rebecca Wilcox – Health & Safety Porfolio

Susan Mokaraka – Community Portfolio

Aroha Parker – Student Achievement Portfolio

Julie Fakahua – Financial Portfolio

Dallas Williams – Property Portfolio

Patsy Davidson (Staff Representative)

Jenny Colebrook (Principal)

At our meeting on the 2nd of August we were presented with our latest achievement data showing marked improvements in many areas according to national standards. We the BOT would like to thank our dedicated staff for their continued efforts with our tamariki and encourage our families to continue to build on the support networks for this learning at home. Having a consistent routine that includes quiet time reading to your child, maths games, and just remembering to pop in and look in your child’s books to show your child that you value the work they do at school can create real change in a child’s attitude towards learning.

In addition to this  I would like to acknowledge Jaymee Makiha who was recently awarded the Sir Peter Blake Young Leaders Award. Jaymee has bee a fantastic role model for many other tauira at our school. Congratulations Jaymee and a special thank you to Tony & Maree who invest so much into the continued excellence in their children.
