Kia ora e te whanau
Unfortunately, because of the wind and drivning rain this morning, Tawhai Kura could not hold the second Mihi Whakatau of the year under the whareruruhau (canopy) but instead our kura hall provided the setting with a limited number of senior classes attending.
The Manuhiri (the new students, new School Board Members, & Mrs Rampala) were warmly and formerly welcomed to Tawhai Kura by a karanga from Tu Rangatira leaders, Memphis, Jessie, & Lianna (thank you to the ongoing support of Charmaine from Koraunui Marae).
After speeches from Mr Whiteman on behalf of the Tangata Whenua (staff & students), Mr McGarry (on behalf of the Manuhiri) & Principal, Mrs Poole, the manuhiri touched elbows with the Tangata Whenua.
After the Mihi Whakatau was concluded with the Tawhai Kura waiata sung beautifully by Rooms 1,3, and 14, our families were then invited to the staffroom to enjoy, a kapu tea, kawhe and kai afer Memphis, Jessie, and Lianna gave a karakia!
