Our Whare Wananga

Whare Wananga by Lika

At the Whare Wananga we had a fantastic time. We did some exciting activities like poi, harakeke and mau rakau, which is movement with a stick. My favourite activity was mau rakau because I enjoyed the movement, it was much easier than I thought. When we ate dinner everyone was saying how wonderful the food was. My favourite food was chop suey and potato bake. I couldn’t stop eating it because it was so scrumptious. After we finished our activities we got ready for bed and Miss Hansell told us a story before we all fell asleep. The next morning we had a delicious breakfast of eggs and spaghetti. When we finished our food we sat down and had a korero with Miss Hansell about what we did and about what we found exciting at the Whare Wananga. I thought it was the activities because they were heaps of fun. At the end Whaea Whetu helped us finish our koru carvings before we went back to class.
