Two new books about Wairarapa have recently been published, authored by Maxine Hemi, available from Huia Publishing.
‘First Flight’ is a collection of short stories for children and young adults about people and events of Ngāti Kahungunu. The majority of the stories focus on key events in the life of Ngāti Kahungunu chief Nukupewapewa.
This graphic novel tells the story of Ngārara Huarau, a taniwha, that travels from Hawke’s Bay to Wairarapa in search of his sister, Pari-kawhiti. As he journeys, his movement shapes the landscape, and his hunger leads him to eat birds, seals, seafood and people, causing terror as he travels south. It is available in Māori and English.

Term 2 will see the RELAUNCH taking place, with lots of fun activities organised by our amazing librarian, Faith.
We are also pleased to announce the new Library app where students can search for titles. If you want to find out more about this and how you can reserve books, visit Faith in the Library.
The Board advises that a number of vacancies have become available at Carterton School. Since the last ballot for out of zone places on Friday 13th November the board has received a number of enquiries from parents of out of zone students seeking to enrol their children at the school this year.
Because the Board operates an enrolment scheme, it is required to fill any vacant out of zone places by ballot in cases where there are more applications for enrolment than there are places available.
The Board has determined that the following places are likely to be available to out of zone students for immediate enrolment:
NE / Yr 1 – 2 places
Yr 2 – 2 places
Yr 5 – 2 places
Yr 6 – 2 places
Yr 7 – 4 places
Akonga Maori Yr 1 / 2 – 2 places
Akonga Maori Yr 3 / 5 – 5 places
The Board is prepared to receive applications, in addition to those which it already holds, so long as they reach the school by 3pm, Monday 2nd May 2016. If a ballot is required it will be held on the evening of Monday 2nd May 2016. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
Application forms can be downloaded here or collected from the school hall from 8.30 – 5pm on weekdays.
