Pairs in Action

We are focused on our learning and enjoying working with our partners finding out about New Zealand's currency and making connections with our current topic "What Makes Us New Zealand".



Kakariki's Whanau Session

Kakariki enjoyed their whanau session which focus on our Mercy Value of "Service".  It was good to do our bit for the school by tidying up the school ground.  Our session finished with playing some games which we thoroughly enjoyed.
