Karakia

Our school karakia was created by our school community, with the majority of ideas about what is important to us coming from the children. The school comes together to begin and end each week with the karakia, remembering the importance of supporting each other as we learn together. This is also a special time for celebrating and acknowledging achievements.

Etau nei ki runga i a tatou katoa te wairua aroha
Settle upon us the loving spirit

kia ngakaunui tatou ki te hapai i a tatou mahi katoa
to enable us to work together

i roto i te hari me te koa me te aroha ano o tetahi ki tetahi
in joy and with respect toward one another

kia puawai tatou katoa.
so that we all grow and blossom together.

Whakakahangia tatou kia mahi tahi kia manaaki,
Also strengthen us to work together to nurture and

kia tiaki i to tatou kura, to tatou hapori, a to tatou taiao hoki.
look after our school, our school community and our environment.

Mauri ora!
Life force!
