Have you been to the Hokule’a and Hikiana powhiri? If you haven’t wow! You have missed an big adventure on Wednesday 25th march. It was great! At first all the schools like Panmure bridge, Glen bray, Tamaki college came to point England reserve for the Malama Honua. Some of the students from every school went for a ride in the boat. Our principal Mr Burt was there and the camera crew was there.
We sat down on the wet green grass and waited for the two waka’s to come, it took for long but as we were waiting someone was blowing a horn and someone was blowing the trumpet. Once they had landed on our beach the man was talking to us then all of the school’s sang three song’s called E oho, Nga waka E whitu and E Honore. It was extremely amazing meeting the people and really fun too.
When we meet the people who traveled from Hawai’i to Point England reserve we had to walk down the stairs then run! Running to high five all the visitors on the hand.There we go running fast as we could through the hard rough sand as we were running it was hard to run in the sand and when we kick the sand will bounce back into our shoes and sandals.
I really liked going to the Malama Honua it was fun.I would like to go and visit Hawai’i for a Holiday and I would like to go on a long day in the boat while we are fishing in the ocean. The excited thing I was really excited about is that we are all going to be on TV!
