Year 9 Powhiri 2016

Naenae College —

The first day of college can be daunting, new teachers, new classmates and a huge place to get lost in. For these reasons Naenae College welcomes its Year 9 students with a powhiri, here is they are introduced to Te Whanau Tahi, their new family for the next five years.

Here’s what some of our Year 9’s thought about the powhiri:

“A really cool way to start at Naenae College.”

“Very scary it was my first time in a powhiri. I was scared but luckily all I needed to do was walk.”

“It was amazing! The kapa haka/ Te whanau tahi was absolutely great.”

“Nerve racking because I sang pretty much by myself but exciting and intriguing. I was very curious as to who I would meet.”
