Purerehua writing

We have been learning Hirini Melbourne's waiata PUREREHUA over the last term. Purerehua Waiata Hirini Melbourne

This waiata is in te reo Maori and is about the life cycle of the butterfly. 

We used this experience as a motivator for writing and wrote a review of the song outlining what the songs means in english.

Below are links to our presentations.

Middle/Senior Cross Country at Ranui Domain 2017













The clouds blew away and the sun came out especially for our school cross country today.

All the children put in a great effort and it was fun to be running in a new environment away from school.
