Nau mai haere mai ki Term 1 2020
Welcome to another term of exciting learning at our kura.
Our overarching theme this year is:
We are Empowered
Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi engari he toa takitini.
I come not with my own strengths but bring with me the gifts, talents and strengths of my
family, tribe and ancestors.
This year our staff professional development is in Te Reo Māori and Digital Technologies. We have also started our first bilingual class in our senior area. We are very lucky to have Whaea Monica teaching in this space.
During Term 1 our focus of study is Papatūānuku - The Earth Mother. Each team will outline exactly what they are studying in each area in their team newsletters.
Our kura continues to be organised in whānau areas so that our seniors can really show our school values of manaakitanga and whanaungatanga in an authentic tuākana/tēina setting.
Another of our values at GEPS is Kairangi which means that we strive for excellence in all that we do. We aim to be the best we can be. Ako - teaching and learning is at the heart of all that we do at our kura. We want the very best learning outcomes for your tamariki and welcome you in to help us achieve this.
