Welcome to Term 3 2021 Learning at Home
Kia ora whānau and welcome to the Kōwhai Learning at Home page.
There are a range of online and offline activities you might like to complete during the day, also shown below. There will be three new learning activities each day for you to choose from. None of these activities are compulsory and it is up to you and your parents to decide which activities will work best in your home situation.
Please contact your child's home group teacher if you have any questions and we can give you an email or call to help.
