The student were treated to a day of learning around the importance of råkau (challenge stick – the stick or baton that the kaiwero lays down at the pōhiri to a distinguished visitor). When working with the råkau we think; positive body, mind, heart and spirit. These values resonate well with our school value – Hauora (wellbeing).
The tamariki learnt 7 of the 38 moves of the råkau.
