Celebrating Ara Tu Whakata

It's been an early start here at Ara Tu Whakata today! Our new space has been blessed by our local runanga. 
Our hangi Fire is burning and ready to be laid!


  1. Kia ora Te Rōpū Manawaroa.
    What a fantastic day for us all. having our learning space blessed was a beautiful way to start the day and it was a privilege having such wonderful people visiting Te Ara Takitini. Our waiata sounded beautiful and you all did extremely well considering it is a new waiata for us. I'm looking forward to many more good times ahead of us.

  2. Hi there, I'm Abby and i'm a year 6 student at Yaldhurst Model School or you can say YMS.

    I like that you put in lots of pictures.

    Did you think about explaining what Ara Tu Whakata is for the people that don't know.

    Kind regards, Abby.

    1. Kia ora Abby! Ara Tu Whakata is the maori name that has been gifted to our school. We are known as Ara Tu Whakata, Gilberthorpe School.
