Papa O Te Aroha Marae

The annual Room 10 Marae stay took place on November 22- 24th, during this time the class; took part in a  powhiri to welcome them onto the Marae, helped get the hangi out and had it for dinner, learnt some long and short rakau with Whaea Awhina's daughters - Angel and Ariana, went to Te Awamutu to learn about the early navigators to Aotearoa - New Zealand with the highly entertaining education officer at the Museum and took part in a water safety course at the swimming pools.
They went to the movie Fantastic Beasts and played some 'spotlight' and learnt a lot about the marae and its carvings from Whaea Prue and .... didn't sleep much!
Here are their versions of their time at Papa':
