Ara Tu Whakata Celebration Assembly

For the last few weeks of term one, every class at Ara Tu Whakata had been working super hard on a piece of work and a presentation to show what their new home class means. Manawaroa created a role play to show perserverance, Kura Pounamu made a giant kete filled with treasures and Whakamanawa created a giant colourful piece of collaborative art displaying a Whakatauki.
In Ngakaunui we wanted to design an artpiece to represent the meaning of our name, big hearts. We each made a background and Miss Johnstone took a photo of our hands making the shape of a heart and then framed all of these photos together. They look pretty cool!

Our hands all together. Te Ropu Ngakaunui- The group of big hearts 2018

Along with this piece of work, we also had to do a presentation at our special assembly. There were lots of important people there watching this. Mr Wilkinson, the builders who built our new spaces, and workers from the Ministry of Education. We were very nervous, but did a great job explaining what Ngakaunui means to us. Check out the video on the second slide below. The last slide is a video of Te Ara Takitini's new waiata which was written by Miss Waho. She did a fantastic job, and our singing sounded beautiful at the assembly.
