Aue, taukiri e!

Ka hinga te rākau kowhai i te pō. Nā te hau a Tāwhirimātea.  
The tamariki did their morning karakia around the rākau. The wood will be used by a carving school so as not to waste it.

Yesterday we had some experts from the Canterbury Tennis Club come and show us some skills to help us when playing tennis. Today they visited us again for our second lot of lessons and we have really improved. It was so much fun.

Today we had a go at making Põtaka using cardboard and foam. These were originally made from wood and were a common game for Māori hundreds of years ago. We had a class competition to see whose Põtaka would spin to longest!
