Y7 and 8 Murihiku Marae Visit, 17-21 June 2024

As part of our Community Breakout Programme our Y7&8 ākonga will be taking part in a marae visit. This used to be a regular event on our calendar, so we are excited to have it back. 

We are very fortunate to be taking our students to the Murihiku Marae where they will be participating in a number of activities based around Te Ao Māori (waiata, poi making, kēmu/games etc.) Students will have the opportunity to build their Te Reo skills and learn more about Māori culture throughout the day. They will be working with some of our older students, which is an excellent way to support the building of relationships at our school.
