Aloha 'Ohana of Room 2,
Our students are special and unique in our class. Each day they walk into our classroom to share their learning with their peers in Room's 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3 and of course Room 2. We are so lucky at Rongomai School to have brilliant,smart thinking students who are eager to learn.
Kia Kaha and Kia Maia 'Ohana of Room 2, you have done a fantastic job helping our tamariki learn their whakapapa. I love your creativity, beautiful colours and mana you have created as a whanau.
I would like to share a special whakatauki; Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi.
Mahalo for your kokua'Ohana,
Part of Hawaiian culture, ʻohana means family (in an extended sense of the term, including blood-related, adoptive or intentional). The concept emphasises that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another.
