The Tui team is a large and vibrant team of Year 3 to 6 students this year. We have a wonderful team of teachers covering 5 classrooms in the school. We are very lucky to have 8 different teachers in our team this year!! We know that our students will have access to a multitude of fun and engaging learning and team-building opportunities throughout the year. Camp will be a highlight for many of our students, with two of our classrooms attending an Ohiwa camp, and the other three classrooms heading into the bush and staying at Lion’s Hut!
