Junior Visit to the Marae

Today Rooms 1, 2, 7 and 8 went to the Marae.
We walked from school and we were welcomed onto the Marae by Mr Kereama. The Kaikanga called us onto the Marae, and Mrs Turner replied and we followed behind her towards the Meeting house. We went into the Meeting house and we sang our waiata and we did a hongi with the people of the Marae. Inside the Wharenui we saw beautiful Tukutuku panels and carvings which represent the ancestors of the Marae.  We ate delicious food inside the Wharekai and we played some traditional Maori games like Pōtaka tā and Rakau.  We had a fantastic day and here are some wonderful pictures.

Thanks to our wonderful parents who helped out today, we couldn’t have done it without you.
