MAORI HEROES (presentations)

What a great morning!

Lots of students presented their Maori Heroes speeches, talks, plays, discussions and debates today. We had students dressed up as their own Hero, and plenty of parents and support to watch.

Well Done to our Term 3 students of Akoranga

A big thank you to our Koru Kapa haka group that opened our presentations
