Awhina's post - Taonga time
This year every Friday for an hour and a half the year 7 and 8 students have Taonga time with different teachers in different classes. Taonga means treasure in Maori. Why do we do this you may ask? We do this to learn about the different passions of our teachers. For instance one of my teachers passions is kapa haka.
We have a number of groups that we split up for Taonga time and they are; kapa haka, sport, music, science, and team building. The group that I am in at the moment is kapa haka. We learn new songs and new actions. We are performing for a powhiri in a couple of weeks.
I feel very pleased to be in kapa haka. We hope we do well at the powhiri and impress the teachers. I really liked kapa haka in the last session!
