Pukehou School

Pictured together are our amazing tamariki who received certificates in assembly today and those that were successful in the Golden Ticket draw. If you look closely, there is a special guest. It has been fantastic to have an ex-pupil, Hunter Yarrall, in school over the last couple of days. He is a Year 13 student at Hastings Boys High School and is considering teaching as a career. From what we've seen, he would make a fantastic teacher and we would love to see him back at Pukehou!

With next week focused on Book Fair and painting it yellow for Daffodil Day, our message in assembly was around colouring our world with kindness. We look forward to hearing back from our families about how they have been showered in kindness this weekend 🙂
