THIS WEEK’S MEMORY VERSE
Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife. Proverbs 17:1
Tena koutou whanau ma – warm greetings to everyone.
The end of term is approaching fast and have been grateful to you all for your support to keep things as ‘normal’ as was possible during those disrupted times. This week and next week we have students heading out to camp at Urupukapuka Island and to Auckland City – we pray for an awesome time away and for God’s protection.
Term 2 Start
You may be aware that ANZAC Day is on the second day back at school next term which would mean a ‘start-stop start’ beginning to the term. As a result of that, Arahura, our local community of schools (CoL) have agreed that we will run a professional development day on Monday 24th April for all schools in the area (first day of term). This means that school will actually start on Wednesday 26th April. Additionally, our secondary staff will be taking part in professional learning around the new requirements for NCEA on Wednesday 26th April so we are advising that secondary students (year 9 to 13) will begin Term 2 on Thursday April 27th, and although not ideal, this will be the least disruptive option for us to manage these events.
In the second week of next term many students will be representing our school in the Taitokerau Kapa Haka festival at Te Rangi Aniwaniwa in Kaitaia. On Tuesday the 2nd May (just before the event) we will have a Whanau evening here at school to share kai, show-case some of the mahi we are doing here and for our performance group to bless you with the bracket they will be performing at Te Rangianiwaniwa – mark the date on your calendars
This is the time of year when we may reflect more deeply on the atoning work of our Lord Jesus in His Passion and on the Cross, and the outpouring of the Love of the Father who gave His only Son that we my not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). We are mindful that in Christ we are a new creation and that (1 Cor 6:20) we are not our own – we have been bought with a price. We have the gift (from God) of faith and exhort one another to live in the fellowship of that faith, bringing our thoughts and deeds into submission to the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit so that we may glorify His name and be presented Holy before a Holy God (Col 1:22).
Blessings to all

Athletics Event run by Te Arahura (CoL) . The top three children in each age category shall be selected to take part in this event. The selection shall take place next week Friday morning during our PE programme.
Our year 3-6 and year 7-8 girls had the opportunity to play in a all girls football tournament on Tuesday to encourage girls about playing football. This tournament was to bring awareness about the New Zealand Women’s football world cup that is being held in New Zealand and Australia this year. We had one of our amazing students who gave her own time and also lunch times to train these girls. WELL DONE GIRLS
