DEAR BOARD OF TRUSTEES,
My name is Lydon, I am 9 years old and I’m from Te Papapa School and my class is room 4. I enjoy learning tuhituhi and pangarau.
What I find difficult is reading maori words and doing tuhinga mahorahora.
This term we have been learning about poi toa and maori sports. What I enjoy the most is making up our own maori games. What I made with my friends was poi soccer. How you play is first you throw the poi up in the air and you can catch it however you want but there is not allowed to be tackling, kicking or fighting.
Next year I want a maori unirform and shorts. I would like to get ki-o-rahi set, someone to teach mau rakau and also, to learn about Hone Heke.
