On Friday, the St. Mary’s Kapahaka group went to Middlemarch. We went on a bus; it took around an hour and a half. When we finally got there we went to the park and had our morning tea. After that we were welcomed into the hall by the Middlemarch Kapahaka group. We sat down and then they sang some songs. Once they had sung a few songs it was our turn. We sang two songs and then we shook all their hands. After that we sang Haere Mai together. Then we walked down to the school and had a BBQ lunch. The senior boys and girls and the younger ones split off into groups. The girls learned some new things with the poi. The boys played some hand games and the Yr 1,2 and 3’s learned new things with the rakau. Now it was time to go back to school so we all jumped on to the bus. We headed back. We listened to music and we were soon back by 3:00 in time to go home.
