Learning Communities Newsletter: Term 4 2016

Tena tatou e te whanau

Term 4 has been full of exciting classroom activities, excursions into the city and the completion of many assessments across the curriculum. It has been extremely rewarding to see students mixing within and across languages and cultures, alongside ‘trying on’ new ways of being, doing, thinking and expressing. It is this love of curiosity, adventure and intercultural interaction that provides meaningful daily experiences at Hagley.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make 2016 a fulfilling year. Our hearts and blessings go out to the families and communities whose lives have been affected by tragedy this year. I am constantly reminded of the warmth, and opportunities that you all continue to provide to support one another and find peace. I wish everyone a safe, happy and relaxing break and for those leaving, I look forward to the great contributions you will make into the future of our city, Otautahi, and New Zealand. Ma te atua koe e tiaki e manaaki. May God care for you and guide you.
