Welcome to the Taeotu 1 blog for 2017. This is where you can catch up with our in-class antics, our out of class adventures and upcoming notices and events. It will also be a page where we celebrate learning in all its forms e.g. sports, Pathways classes, whanau days, writing, mathematics...you name it!
Who Are Taeotu 2017?
We are a Year 8 class of 19 boys and 12 girls. We are a mix of students that have returned to RIS after Year 7 and we have some students who are new to our school. The places we have come from are important but so too is our journey together. He waka eke noa. We are all in this together for 2017!
