It has certainly been an action packed year so far and Homai Campus School Newsletter Term 3 is full of news and activities from around the campus.
We hope you enjoy reading about our adventures outside of the classroom and all the things we have been learning in the classroom.
On Monday 17th June Len Brown, the Mayor of Auckland, visited Homai Campus. His visit lasted an hour and was a happy event for the students. We started with a Mihi Whakatau which was attended by the whole school, including Kickstart and James Cook, with students taking a leading part. The mayor knew a few of the students from Christmas parties past and took great delight in connecting with them again. They loved his ‘free-styling’:
‘I’m Len Brown
And you’re in my town
It’s great that Len’s
Here at BLENNZ’
After a cup of tea in the staffroom with the Kickstart and James Cook students the mayor visited the classrooms and engaged with some of the students as they were working.
