Today all the seniors walked down to Taumata O Te Ra Marae.
We have been learning about marae protocol and it was great to experience a real powhiri.
We had a chance to play various Maori games and we were shown around the wharenui. It was interesting learning how the carvings, the tukutuku panels and the kowhaiwhai pattern all tell a story about the history of the people of the marae.
Here are some photos of our day:
Thanks so much for having us!
