Kia-Ora, I have the pleasure of learning alongside an amazing group of CHARMing students in Room 13.  We are striving to use a Growth Mindset so we can be Powerful Learners. We are thoroughly enjoying discovering the various strengths and interests we each have. Whanau and visitors are welcome to come along to have fun and share new experiences.

Tenā tatou Te Whānau whanui o Te Wharau,

Ko Matua Shanan tōku ingoa. He uri au no Te Aitanga a Hauiti. 

You will find me in Room 15 this year and I am excited to be with the awesome Year 4 whanau. We embrace matauranga Māori and Te Wharautanga. We are a lively bunch with aspirations to be kind, to be respectful and to be CHARMing. Our doors are always open- “nau mai”

“Ka tipu te whaihanga e hika ki Te Wharau”
