Marae trip

On Tuesday we went on a special as trip to the marae. It was special because the Maori pray,they sing,and they respect God.The trip was special because it is a very very holy place.

Most the of men sat in the front. They did the hongi and Anna-lei did it too.Then we sang “He Honore”  and  “He Kororia.”After that we sang a virtue song in Maori. Mr Coakley said tena koe,tena koe,tena koe kato.

After that we had morning tea then we went outside and played.Then we went in to groups I was with my soul friend George.

After that we went into groups of two I was in Matua Jim’s group.He sang “head shoulders knees and toes and the rest of our body parts”.
 
Then he sang “Ola lehliu” and he was mocking john key.Then we made flowers out of flax.

we bended one side then we made one on that side then we bend under one side then repeat it then repeat it again 5 times.

After that we went to have our lunch we sat down we all got our lunch I got fruit from Mister Gaffney.Thomas wanted to get some water. He asked Mister Gaffney we had our karakia before we ate.

After we ate our lunch we went outside.We played it was Opeti, Akesa, Dianne, Solomone, Kalisi, Aria, Silia, and I.Then Mrs tui said go in the wharenui so we can say our karakia and leave goodbye.

We said goodbye we left to put on our shoes. I went in the place we eat our food the wharekai.So I can get my flower made out of  flax.after that we went and walk back to school saftely.

When we made it back to school we wrote about it the End.
