It’s been a great year leading Maihi this year. We have had many successes both as individuals and as a whole whanau. Winning both year 9 and full school tabloids was a great way to start the year off with a bang. Throughout the year we have had many students compete for points in whanau competitions such as; 4-way volley, football, chess and even gaming. It was great seeing our whanau come together and build relationships during these competitions. In Maihi we have a saying, “many hands make light work.” That’s one of the great things about being in such a multicultural and diverse school. When we do come together as one, as Te Whanau Tahi, our different cultures, experiences and values unite us. Making us stronger and better prepared to face any challenges that come our way. Together we stand as one.
