'Mauria te pono' - 'Believe in yourself'

As we enter the second holiday break of the year, the last 11 weeks have been enjoyable, sometimes demanding but always rewarding. Being a teacher in a school is a privilege and one in which carries responsibility. We are responsible for the dreams, aspirations and future of many tamariki.
I believe the whakatauki (Maori proverb) 'Mauria te pono' - 'Believe in yourself' is one that resonated with Room 1 this term. Each child is unique and this whakatauki is one that I want all our tamariki to remember. Every child will have a dream or an aspiration that they can achieve. But this will not happen if first and foremost, they don't believe in themselves.

Have a happy and enjoyable holiday everyone!!
