The 5 whānau are:
Te Whānau o Waimirirangi (Hokianga princess) Te Whānau o Tawatāwhiti (Pā site) Te Whānau o Waiarohia (Awa/river) Te Whānau o Kauika (Pā site) Te Whānau o Parihaka (Maunga/Mountain) With the new names we were asked to paint some signage acknowledging each whānau. We (Juliana & I) spent 2 days during the school holidays painting them. A massive to my mentor Juliana, ngā mihi to our leadership team and principal who came up with the initiative and also to Mr Peyton for purchasing and cutting out the wooden canvases. We thoroughly enjoyed the project and love them. He aha tō whakaaro?
