Rongomaraeroa-o-nga-hau-e-wha and Us.

We are so lucky to have such a close relationship with our Marae, and their endless support and encouragement.  Below is a video of our two senior classes giving a little back to our Marae as they tautoko the powhiri for the new Chief of Army.  It was a long and freezing day, and I am so proud of the manner in which our students conducted themselves.

Thank you to Pip Bliss for capturing our kids in the perfect spot! 🙂

The Great Waiouru School Dance Off Is Coming To You!

Waiouru School is super fortunate to have received funds from the Ruapehu District Council Creative Community Grants Board to bring Mark Glastonbury from Glastonbury Studios, Whanganui up to school every Wednesday to teach dance to our kids.

The kids had their first lesson on Wednesday and absolutely loved it, even though that had to dance with members of the opposite sex (apparently liberal amounts of hand sanitizer post-dancing helps elevate ‘boy germs’ lol I was in tears when I read that on Facebook!).  Our goal is that at the end of the term Mark will hold and judge a dance off completion for our students.  So save the date whanau, Wednesday 23rd September, it’s going to be better than Dancing With The Stars!!

Here’s a weee sneak peak at the senior classes first session …
