The Maara Kai development has been progressing extremely well. To date the following has occurred...

  • The existing horse paddock has been cleared
  • The dripper lines for the new septic system have been laid out at the SH35 end
  • Maara Kai committee formed, all welcome. Matua Willy leads this group.
  • We have recieved a generous grant from the Williams Trusts to purcahse trees
  • Children have been extensively involved in the planning of the layout of the Maara and the types of fruit trees that have been selected
  • An excellent planting day on 25th August to get the trees in the ground, this was well supported by whanau... Nga mihi nui!
  • A generous grant from Te Puni Kokiri has been made to purcahse tools, composting equipment and timber for the raised vegetable beds.
  • Posts and wires installed to espalier fruit trees
  • An area to develop a carpark capable of parking buses has been set aside
  • Raised vegetable gardens laid out

The vision for our Maara Kai is to sustainably supply our children with fruit and to provide a source of fresh fruit and vegetables to our marae and community.

Our children will be actively involved in learning gardening skills which will serve them well in the future.

The Maara Kai is also a source of engagement with our school community.

Room 3 children enjoyed a full day learning how to play badminton with the Waikato University PE advisor and a representative from the Gisborne Badminton Club. The children loved the day and a group of them have been invited to play in the Gisborne Intermediate Schools Tournament on Thursday 25th June. Well done! Other classes are now queuing up for the hall to play badminton and staff have been planning after school sessions for themselves! It's great to see our children so enthusiastic about non-traditional sports and giving them a go... Kia kaha kia u!

Each Wednesday after school 3 teams have been heading off to Te Waiu to play league against other school teams. The boys have LOVED it and have enjoyed the physicality of the game. Their skills have been improving each week and no doubt they will be keen for league to be included in the schools sporting opportunities regularly. All 3 teams are heading to a tournament on Wednesday 24th June to round off the season. Special thanks to Matua Wily and Matua Kaua who have coaches the boys and given up their Wednesday afternoons to attend the games. Nga mihi nui kia Matua Tiwana no TKKM o te Waiu mo tona mahi whakahaere... ka mau te wehi!

Monday afternoons have been a hive of activity in T2 at school as we host the local basketball league in our school hall. This term Y7&8 have had their league, in T1 Y5&6 had their league and no doubt Y2&3 will be organised next term. Matua Jimi Hills is the primary organiser, he does a fantastic job and we have schools from Tokomaru Bay right through to Hicks Bay coming in each week. Our players have done really well. their ball skills are developing and many of them have been selected to play in the EC teams that play against Gisborne teams on a Friday evening. A feature of the EC teams are that they are head and shoulders above the town teams, this can be put down to natural skills, great coaching and court time.

All our children have the opportunity to play in the leagues hosted by our school and we provide a bus back to Ruatorea after their games so that transport is not an issue for whanau.

Each Wednesday afternoon the school empties out at 2.50pm as children head off to their league and netball. This year we have 5 teams playing in the Ruatorea Netball competition. Our young players have the opportunity to start as 5 year olds who have no idea of positions, etc but who love to catch and pass the ball... if goals are scored along the way that's a bonus! As the children progress through the teams their skill levels, understanding of the game and sportsmanship also develop. Our top team that is coached by Koka Keriana also travel to Gisborne every Saturday to play in the competition there, this really gives the upcoming players something to aspire to. Having said this special thanks must be paid to all of the parent helpers on Wednesday and those who assist with transport on Saturday, without their help our children would not be able to participate.
