What a Suprise!
On Thursday 16th February, we welcomed some special guests from Ebbet Pukekohe.
Early in November 2022, Ebbet Pukekohe approached Mr. Clark with a sponsership deal. They would give us a school van to use for school events and travel if we advertised their business. Ebbet Pukekohe are known for supporting schools, and sports teams. Locals supporting locals.
Kaiya Smith and Andy Jackson came to our school to give us this gift. Waiau Pa School held a Whakatau to welcome them into our community and show gratitude for their generous gift to our school.
Everyone is so grateful for this van, and we look forward to using it for sports events, Jump Jam, William Pike, and more.
Thank you Ebbet Pukekhoe.
