Kauri Whānau: Leadership and Cheese Rolls

Cheese Rolls

We have hit an all-time record with cheese roll orders: 557 dozen! Huge thanks to those of you who have placed orders, especially those who asked around family and friends and obtained large orders. The ingredients have been ordered and we are now rolling into the operation management phase. We need some help with equipment and a few adult helpers on the making day: this Thursday, March 12th.  Please click on this link to see if you can help.

Leadership Week

What an awesome week we have had with your fabulous children! I have had so much positive feedback from our NE - Year 4 teachers about how fabulous the Year 7s did with their leadership on Thursday and Friday.

Leadership camp was a great opportunity to see our Year 8s grappling with challenges in groups. So many of them stepped up to provide support, ideas and encouragement. As well as developing leadership skills, this was a good opportunity to further develop relationships. Lots of fun was had and many lasting memories made! At the end of the camp, the children filled in nominations for the Sir Peter Blake Leadership Award. This award is decided on and presented later in the year. We have a number of children who received multiple nominations. We will watch to see how their personal leadership develops before deciding on the recipient of this award.
