Powhiri

Kia Ora, In term 3 Room 10 studied Maori culture. We learned about protocol on the marae. We created a wharenui in our classroom and we are sharing our knowledge by making this movie. Enjoy and learn. Ka kite.

Yesterday Mr Munick came to school to film us doing our powhiri with room 7. First Kyana, Sommer and I had to do the Karanga to call room 7 in to our class room. When room 7 came right into our classroom the boys started to chant the haka called "Toia Mai." We had to chant the haka twice. Then Brandon had to do his mihi in Maori. We had to sing a waiata. We learned a lot about the protocols used on the marae.

Thanks for sharing your video. Ember (Mrs Boyer's mokopuna) was very interested to hear you speaking te reo Maori as she loves reading the Maui legends at the moment and is learning about Maori pronunciation.

Ka pai!
