Auckland goes into level 3 lockdown
The most important message we’d like to send out to our community, as we face this uncertain future, is to put your health and the health of your family first. Whether this lockdown ends on Friday at midnight as reported, or we face a longer stretch, we know what to do. It is the small things we can do to keep ourselves and others safe, and that helps us hold on to a small but important sense of control:
- practise good hand and face hygiene
- keep track of we’re you’ve been
- stay at home if you are sick
- physical distancing
- wear a mask

New kaiako pōhiri at the marae
Last Thursday, the 6th of August, we went to our marae, Te Herenga Waka o Orewa, to formally welcome our new kaiako to the area. We met after school and began the special process of becoming a part of the marae. It was amazing to see new kaiako turn up, keen to build ties to the marae and te ao Māori.
It was great to see the change from a few years ago where we had very few speakers from our kura to Thursday where we had people who had upskilled their reo and were able to kōrero confidently.
