Today we received some sad news. Our tuckshop manager, Matua Roger Davis passed away this morning. Our staff and students are very heartbroken over the news as Matua Roger wasn’t just our tuckshop manager, he was the man that would warm up children’s cold pies in his warmer and the man who knew every child’s name. Matua Roger was well loved by every single Rongomaite and he will be dearly missed.
Our hearts go out to Whaea Claudia, Whaea Makerita and the rest of the Davis whanau. Out of respect to the Davis Whanau and to support them during this time of grief, the tuckshop will be closed all of next week until further notice.
We apologise for the inconvenience however, we will continue to provide our students with sandwiches, Kidscan food, milk and fruit each day. Thank you and God bless!
Whaea Pae – Principal
