Avondale Primary is exciting to be involved in the 2022 Whale Tales initiative. It is a privilege to be selected, knowing that we are contributing to the protection and restoration of mauri in the moana. The tamariki at APS are kaitiaki – guardians. We strive to learn, contribute, and protect the incredible diversity of our natural world. We believe in tūrangawaewae, ‘a place to stand’, where we feel empowered and connected. This Whale Tales opportunity allows us to authentically embrace our enduring understanding and the future directions, our whakapuāwai, optimistically and through a solutions-focused lens. We are 100% ready to MAKE A SPLASH!
