Students spend a day on the Marae

Earlier this year each Year 9 Hub class had the opportunity to spend a day on our school Marae Te Taumata O Te Matauranga.

Both students and staff participated in a range of learning activities that allowed them to learn and understand a little more about the stories connected to our school Wharenui, Tiikanga and our school Mooteatea and Haka.

The students also learned a little about Ngaati Mahaanga, our local Hapuu and Waikato-Tainui. They also had the opportunity to experience working with Harakeke (flax) with various degrees of success.
