Kia ora koutou.  Happy New Year and a warm welcome back to school.  Netherby School has worked very hard in forming and maintaining a Whanau Hui group for the purposes of consulting with our Māori Community in an authentic way. The Whanau Hui group is made up of parents who identify as Māori or have children who identify as Māori. We ask for this group to support, set direction and provide valued cultural input into our school on a frequent basis. All Whanau are welcomed and encouraged to become part of this group. Our next meeting is set for Monday 5th February at 3.15 in the school library. We look forward to seeing you. Tahi tatou mahi atu (together we achieve more).
