On a sunny Friday morning the whole
school walked down to Tawaraunui
to welcome our Kuia and Kaumatua
to our kura. It was Kuia and Kaumatua day.
First Whaea Waitangi called the karanga for the kura.
Then Whaea Koryna said the karanga for the manuhiri.
Next the whole school sang a waiata.
After that Papa Puke said the mihi tuatahi
and Papa Wattie said the mihi tautoko.
Later On the manuhiri returned the speech to the hau kainga.
I felt so happy my Kuia and Kaumatua came because they know I love them so much.
