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. We expect you will be engaging with at least one of the new daily learning activities each day, and you and your parents will need to decide which activities will work best in your home situation.

Please contact your home group teacher if you have any questions.
