“He ka mau te wehi” (a fantastic day) happened at ABC Howick, when we celebrated Waitangi Day with children and whanau. We started off with the Powhiri to welcome our iwi and whanau followed by Kapa Haka performance from our children. After this it was time for a sumptuous ‘boil-up” with parai paraaoa (fried bread). The whole essence of this celebration was to come together as whakawhanaungatanga ki tautoko nga tamariki ako Tikanga reo Maori.
