Mrs Staniford's Twizel Pōwhiri
On Wednesday 1st February, Ten students, Mrs Cairns and Mr Samson travelled to Twizel to support Mrs Staniford in the mihi whakatau to her new school - Twizel Area School.
Our students did the school and themselves very proud. The students sang waiata to tautoko (Support) Mr Samson's kaikorero (Speech) and an emotional haka when Mrs Staniford was handed over to Twizel. The students presented a rakau (Tree) to Mrs Staniford on behalf of The Catlins Area school community to be planted in their new school grounds to symbolise our connection.
A huge thank you to our students for representing us with such Mana (strength) - Lauren Grant, Jo Brain, Danielle Mason, Bronte Williams, Casey Osborne, Margaret Tyrell, Charlotte Pitts, Izzy Jenks, Tafaitoa Tyrell and Jade Gutsell.
