As part of our lead up to our school wide Matariki event, our two bilingual classes (Te Manawanui) came together for a kaitahi.

As part of our lead up to our school wide Matariki event, our two bilingual classes (Te Manawanui) came together for a kaitahi. Our special guests - the Principal and Deputy Principal's were shown manaakitanga throughout the whole process such as waiata, karanga, shared learning, goal setting, reflecting, learning the kaikōhau and not to mention the kai.

The kai consisted of foods (as best as we could) that related to ngā whetū - Waitī, Waitā, Waipunarangi, Tupuānuku and Tupuārangi. Our manuhiri and tamariki were treated to a seafood chowder, boil up, fried bread, stuffing, self saucing chocolate pudding with cream and fruit salad.

This was a unique experience which was enjoyed by all. Tēnā koutou katoa ki ngā tamariki o Te Manawanui, otirā ki o tātou manuhiri. Ngā mihi whānau!!
