The earth is our mother


Papatūānuku is our mother,
Papatūānuku we must take care of her.

Papatūānuku is our mother,
Papatūānuku she must take care of us.

Kia Kaha Kia Kaha

Her sacred ground we walk upon,
with every step we take. x2

Kia Kaha Kia Kaha X2

Papatūānuku is our mother,
Papatūānuku we must take care of her.

Papatuanuku is our mother,
Papatūānuku she will take care of us.


Kia kaha kia kaha X2

Learning how to collaborate made fun.

In professional development this week hub 11 & 12 teachers discussed areas of the graduate profile that we felt we could further promote and strengthen our knowledge of within the hubs. 

Collaboration was an area we felt we could develop - although we talk a lot about collaboration we felt our learners were not confident in explaining what this actually meant. So today we took 20 hub 12 learners along with hub 11 to share what it means to collaborate effectively.

Here are some photos of a few of the activities we participated in.

School production song





Hub 11 & 12 have been working really hard to learn their part from memory, can you please practice the song together at home - our learners will certainly be proud to show off their singing abilities.

Planting with Hub 12 - Wondering

I wonder what will grow ?



I wonder what each plant might need?

I wonder whose plant will be the tallest?
