Going to the marae

Tūhuru Marae - Arahura
On Thursday Ruma Kea are going to visit Tūhuru marae.
Write a paragraph about what you think the day will be like. It can be from the moment you wake up or from the car ride to the marare. What was the weather like on Thursday?
Here are some sentence starters.
When I woke up I had breakfast, got dressed and then took the bus to school. Once I was at school.............
When I got to school I had to hop in a car with a parent and my school friends, it was a long ride to the marare.
Here are some words in Te reo Māori you could use:
· Manahau (Excited)
· Whakamā (Shy)
· Harikoa (Happy)
· Pahi (bus)
· Motokā (Car)
· Awa (river)
· Wharenui (Dining room)

When I woke up I got dressed and had breakfast and got on the Pahi to school.I had to go into Lukas Drnasins car to go to the marare. In the car ride I hope that me and Lukas have fun going to the marae. I hope that someone will do a haka at the marare. I can’t what to make a pou. I can’t what to go to the marae. I hope that when we go to the marae we will be welcomed to the marae with a kakakea and when we take are shoes off  we will listen to 3 or more spichis at the marae and then do the hongi. Then the person that welcomes us will show us around the marae and introduce are self after morning tea. After we have a little play we will get to touch the carvings inside the marae and listen to some more spichis.

I felt the carvings and the carpet on the floor. I saw the nui marai and the people welcoming us.

Every marae has protocols and rules that you must follow while you are there.  Listen to the tangata whenua and write down the rules that you are to follow while you are at Tuhuru.  Present it as a poster on this page:

You should look after the environment

You should look after the Environment

In my opinion you should look after our beautiful planet and if you don’t look after the plant it will be a dump.

You shouldn't put rubbish on the ground. If you put rubbish on the ground it will fly away.

We should look after the water so we can go swimming. If we don’t look after the water we won’t be able to go swimming!

You should put rubbish in the bin. If you don’t put it in the rubbish bin the place will be polluted.

In my opinion you should look after the place. So it is not a dump. It should be a clean place.
