He rā whatiwhati kō
A day of hard work
This whakatauki could be used when talking about a community initiative that required a hard day’s work. For example a community gardening session or day-long workshop/meeting.

I like this whakatauki, although I think it can apply to the last 12 school days of lockdown. I am sure you are all working hard at home with the on-line learning and the challenges it brings whether it is doing the work, or supporting those that are.
Over the last few days you would have been involved with subject choice for 2022. Not all the meetings have been completed and this will hopefully be finished off next week. It is a significant time for us as a school as indication of courses to be taken certainly impacts on how we staff our school. I hope you have enjoyed, or will enjoy the opportunity to discuss your son or daughter’s choices.
Earlier in the week it was announced that there is a possibility that Learning Recognition Credits could again be used this year. For us to qualify, we need to have been in lockdown for at least 20 school days during the year. This has not happened yet. What you need to know is below.
There will be an announcement about Alert Levels early next week. Should Wellington go to Alert Level 2 then all students would be able to return to the College with certain conditions attached. I will contact you next week regarding this.
I hope you all have a good weekend
