10TI and 10SM trip to Ngahutoitoi Marae

On the 1st of May 10TI and 10SM were fortunate to be able to visit Ngahutoitoi Marae.  We were greeted with a warm welcome and some kai.  We were really interested to learn about the Kowhaiwhai panels and the story of the Marae.  Students in this class are creating their own Kowhaiwhai panels while completing an Achievement Standards towards NCEA Level 1.

We loved our visit and the students learnt lots about the patterns, their meanings and just how beautiful modern Marae can be.
