This year all of our Year 9 students will have the opportunity to visit the Rapaki marae, as part of the curriculum for their cohort.
The visits will take place in the last week of Term 1, or in the second week of Term 2.
Students will prepare for their visit in their whānau class, learning about the pōwhiri and marae tikanga and practising their mihi/pepeha to use on their visit.
Each visit will leave school at 8:30 in the morning and return to school during period 4.
Students will wear school uniform.
A small morning tea will be served at the marae.
Dates and order of visits:
- 10th April = 9HN, 9CD, Kohanga Ako
- 11th April = 9BU, 9 HW
- 7th May = 9EA, 9HY
- 8th May = 9TO, 9 TN
Building on their visit to the Rapaki marae last year, this year all Year 10 students will visit the Rehua Marae in Springfield Road.
These visits will take place in Term 3. Details will be available later in the year.
