Marae Day

Marae Day

This term we were lucky enough to have our whole school trip to the Oakura Marae. We walked down in the morning and were welcomed onto the Marae with a powhiri. Following the powhiri we all had some morning tea before starting on the activities. We began with poi for the girls and the rakau for the boys. We then moved onto doing a scavenger hunt and some weaving. Next Libby, Bodhi and Kath led us in waiata before we went to have further instruction in doing the haka. When we had completed all of the set activities it was time for the hangi. The hangi was delicious. We had a great day at the Marae!
