Ka hiahia mātou ki tētehi kaiako matatau i te reo Māori me ngā taonga tuku iho nō ngā tūpuna. Ko te mahi matua mō taua kaiako ngā pepī me ngā tamariki nohinohi. Ēngari, he whānau kotahi mātou, he ope kotahi hoki mātou.  He ōrite ki te pā. Mā te katoa o ngā kaiako e tiaki, e manaaki e whakaako tamariki. E kiia nei i te reo Pākeha “It takes a village to bring up a child.” Ko tō rourou me ā mātou rourou kia ora ai ngā kōhungahunga. Nei rā anō, ka hiahia tētehi kaiako kia riro ai te tohu mātauranga mō ngā kōhungahunga.  Nei rā hoki tō hiahia haere mai ki tō mātou “Pā”. E awhi atu, e awhi mai tātou katoa.

Hei tikitiki mō te māhunga

Ko tō wairua ki tō Atua, Nānā nei ngā mea katoa
