RECOUNT WRITING OF MY TRIP TO THE RUAPOTAKA MARAE
St Pius X Catholic school had the opportunity to go and explore at the Ruapotaka Marae. Once we arrived the noise settled down and we waited patiently for the welcoming.
Each child or adult had their shoes off before they are too entered the Marae. I liked how we sang, create the flax flower and learn the Pepeha which was interesting to know the difference between a Mihimihi and a Pepeha. A Pepeha is when you introduced or greet yourself but a Mihimihi is quite the same as sspeech.
