We are looking at who we are. What does our name really mean?
First we had to find out what endeavour meant. This is what we came up with. This means we have to have a goal and be working towards it.
To be 'In the Waka' we all need to be a team. We work towards the same goal and all paddle in the same direction. If someone falls out the waka, we need to stop and help them back in again. We will reach our goal more quickly in the Waka than if we were on our own.
The problem is, a waka needs some paddles. We are still thinking about the key things we believe in. They will become our guidelines - not rules but things we follow. We are beginning to think that we are all teachers and learners in out class so AKO could be one. Give 100% effort might be another. Showing respect to people and things is really important in Waka Endeavour.
