Kia ora te whānau o Glen Eden Primary
Ko Barry Soljan raua ko Janette Clark oku Matua
Ki te taha o tōku Mama
Ko Titirangi te maunga
Ko Waipareira te awa
Ko Waitakere te whenua
Ko Ngati Pakeha tōku Iwi
Ki te taha o tōku Papa
Ko Sveti Nikol te Maunga
Ko Slatina te awa
Ko Adriatic te moana
Ko Ngati Tarara te iwi
No Starigrad toku whanau
Ko Rota Carrington tāku hoa tane
Ko Donna Soljan ahau
Kia ora te whanau o Glen Eden Primary
Nau mai haere mai ki 2021.
Our Whakatauki for this year is: Me mahi tahi tātou mō te oranga o te katoa - We should work together for the wellbeing of everyone.
This seems a fitting whakatauki given what 2020 served up and with the uncertainty we still have with COVID19.
We have lots of exciting learning planned for the year. As a staff we are continuing our professional learning in the areas of English, Digital Technology and Te reo Māori. Tui team (Year 5 & 6) students have 1-1 devices this year. We have two bilingual classes in 2021 and look forward to that growing in 2022 with the addition of a Year 1-2 class.
We also have a lot of building plans in 2021. Last year we got our new turf and a beautiful new LSC office. This year the library will be fully upgraded too. We will have our fale built in 2021 and hope to also have the block with Rooms 1-4 refurbished. So lots to watch this this year.
As always we are working hard to make learning an enjoyable and rewarding experience for our tamariki. I look forward to a great year ahead.
As always our doors are open and we welcome your feedback.
