Tēnā koutou katoa,
One of the foremost desires that most of you have expressed to me this term has been for there to be a return of some interschool and community events so big mihi to those of you trying to get some events going or are looking for some ideas around this.
- One cool event at the end of last year was the Te Horo School Moveathon which involved a whole two days dedicated to hauora and activity at Te Horo School. What an awesome way to get the community together!
- Check out this link if you want to learn more about it – Te Horo School Moveathon
Attached are the next nuggets regarding food labels.
