The 2024 theme for Samoa Language Week is 'Tautua i le alofa, manuia le lumana’i – Serve in love for a blessed future'.
T

What does the phrase ‘Tautua i le alofa’ mean? The concept of tautua focuses on the phrase – “Serve in love”. Love is the driving force of service. No matter what service looks like or who is doing it, service is accomplished through the power of love.

The Te Kāpheu Fun Run will be held on Friday 17th May!

For this event, students will run around the Te Kāpehu back field jumping over obstacles, weaving through challenges, all while listening to music and having fun with their friends. There will also be a dress up theme of pink shirt or bright colours (gold coin donation), so I ask that everyone wears bright outfits suitable for running. The event is all about participation, enjoyment and supporting the anti bullying campaign that celebrates diversity and creates environments where all people can feel safe, valued and respected. We hope our learners have fun taking part!

Kahikatea 9:15-10:15am

Kāpuka 10:45-11:45am

Patītī 1:50-2:45pm

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Te Kāpehu mums! I hope you are being spoilt!

Two big events next week!

Thursday 16th May

Next week a handful of learners will be competing in the Cross Country event at Riccarton High School. This will run from 9:15-10:15 am on Thursday 16th May.

Learners are expected to be at Te Kāpehu before 9:00am to meet (in space 11). We will then head over to RHS at 9:10am, after school rolls have been done.

For this event, learners will need to run three laps around the RHS backfield, which is equivalent to 3 km.

Tamariki entering this event will need to wear appropriate clothing (school polo top, shorts, running shoes and a sun hat). They should also bring a drink bottle.

Whānau are welcome to come along and show their support!

Friday 17th May

Kia ora whānau,

It is almost time for this year's cross country! While this is an awesome opportunity for some learners, we recognise that not everyone enjoys taking part in this. With the aim of creating a more rewarding and enjoyable experience for our learners, we are hosting another event, in addition to the competitive cross country.

The Te Kāpheu Fun Run will be held on Friday 17th May!

For this event, students will run around the Te Kāpehu back field jumping over obstacles, weaving through challenges, all while listening to music and having fun with their friends. There will also be a dress up theme of pink shirt or bright colours (gold coin donation), so I ask that everyone wears bright outfits suitable for running. The event is all about participation, enjoyment and supporting the anti bullying campaign that celebrates diversity and creates environments where all people can feel safe, valued and respected. We hope our learners have fun taking part!

Today is the day that we remember and acknowledge all of our New Zealand and Australian Service Personnel. We especially remember the many former Te Kāpehu Riccarton School students who have served over our 150-year history, many of whom lost their lives in WW1 and WW2. Lest we forget.

E kore rātou e kaumātuatia
Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue neiE kore hoki rātou e ngoikore
Ahakoa pehea i ngā āhuatanga o te wā
I te hekenga atu o te rā
Tae noa ki te aranga mai i te ata
Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou.
Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.
We will remember them.

Last week was the final session of our Mana Ake Building Pasifika Fanau Group.
Rory and Kali really enjoyed watching the tamariki grow in their confidence over the past 6 weeks and have appreciated the seniors stepping up and showing great leadership in the group.

MANA is...

Be proud of yourself

Be proud of your culture
