Kia Ora koutou katoa, thank you to everyone for supporting the pōwhiri today. It was another great achievement for our children and whānau in the RSS hāpori. After the pōwhiri Shane (Rangitane representative) walked a handful of guests and the children in Poutokomanawa through a traditional Māori blessing of our classroom. It was amazing! Shortly after, we all went to the staffroom to have something to eat with our guests. I'm sad I didn't capture any images of the pōwhiri or the blessing but our class did get a photo with Shane before he left.
