Te Whanau-a-Apanui Area School principal Max Kemara is positive about the school year 2014.

The Whanau-a-Apanui Area School had their school welcome for the five new teachers last Wednesday. Max Kemara is affiliated to Te Whanau-a-Apanui and Te Whakatohea and is chuffed that four of the new teachers are local with one teacher from outside the district but bring teaching skills to help their children through education pathways.

Max Kemara said his children are looking forward at restarting school in the level 2 term. Last years  year11 children all passed their level 1 NCEA in literacy and numeracy a pass rate of 100%.

Max Kemara said his children are spoilt for choices with so many courses available and perhaps a kapa haka trip to Scotland in the mix as well as other travels to other lands in the fore-seeable future.

Kei te hiikaka te tumuaki o Te Kura Rohe o Te Whanau-a-Apanui a Max Kemara ki te timatanga o te akoranga tau rua mano ngahuru ma wha. No te Rapa huri nei i tu te pohiri a Te Kura Rohe o Te Whanau-a-Apanui kia whakatangata whenua i nga kaiako hou tokorima. Otira hei nga korero a Max Kemara tenei uri o Te Whanau-a-Apanui me Te Whakatohea tokowha o nga kaiako hou no te kaainga tonu o Te Kaha me te tokorima o ratau no waahi kee, ina kee o ratau pukenga ki te kawe i nga kaupapa e whai matauranga i aana tamariki. Me te korero a Max Kemara kei te kaingakau na tamariki no tera tau ki te hoki ano ki te kura kia akoako ratau i nga matauranga o te paerewa tuarua. Ara ko nga tamariki no te reanga tekau ma tahi tau i mau katoa ratau i te paerewa tuatahi o te NCEA mo te panui me te taatai kia kotahi rau oorau. Ki taa Max Kemara ko te mea whakahirahira maana ko nga kaupapa kura e maha ana hei whiriwhiritanga maa ana tamariki, ara pea tetahi haerenga kapa haka ki te whenua o Kotimana me etahi haerenga i etahi atu whenua koinei te matakite i tenei waa.
