Visits to Kawiu Marae
On Thursday 2 and Friday 3 March, our school visited Kawiu Marae, of Muaūpoko Iwi. Our juniors visited on Thursday and our seniors visited on Friday.
The visits to the marae provided our children with an outstanding learning experience, where they were involved in powhiri, waiata, hongi and the breaking of tapu, through shared kai.
Our children were outstanding and did themselves proud, with their superb behaviour and respect of kawa.
We are incredibly grateful to Muaūpoko for hosting us and welcoming us onto their Marae. These visits have started our relationship with Muaūpoko and Kawiu.
Ka mau te wehi ngā tamariki!
