Marae Stay 2015

At the end of November every year, Room 10 spend two nights at our local Marae - Papa O Te Aroha.

This is always a special time for the class - a good way to learn about the marae; to take part in a powhiri, find out some of the stories the carvings tell  and to explore examples of culture and heritage- the kowhaiwhai and tukutuku panels.

The class spend time together, take part in the educational programme at the Te Awamutu Museum, go to the movies and walk back to the marae late at night and then play spotlight.

They eat together and all sleep in the wharenui - and the stay is finished with a swim at the local pools. Good times ( not a lot of sleep )
