Iwi’s are our whole school assemblies. Under COVID Red Light settings, we are unable to join together as a whole kura, so we’ve gone online. Celebrate students success, relive Athletics Day 2022, get some Diligence tips and a bit of Literacy inspo.

Ka rawe Iritana.Imagine missing out on playing for the Black Ferns at the Women’s Rugby World Cup because you had other pressing matters…

Well that’s exactly what happened to Constable Iritana Hohaia (Taranaki iwi) who’s part of the New Zealand Black Ferns Women’s rugby squad. Unfortunately due to recruit training and her graduation, she traded the recent World Cup competition to graduate as part of Wing 360 from the Royal New Zealand Police College.

She may look familiar for another reason – she appeared in Police’s Puhikura recruitment campaign earlier this year.

Iritana is keen to continue to play rugby professionally while working as a Constable and is heading to Taranaki to start her career.

Ka pai Iritana 👏 👏
