Powhiri at Wiri Central School

As we walked around the corner into Wiri Central School we were called in by a young student's karanga (call). Speeches and waiata (songs) followed. Then all the Ahuroa children came up to shake hands (hariru) and hongi.

Later we were given performances from a range of cultural groups with beautiful and inspiring singing and dancing.

Ahuroa students and teachers are taken up on stage to dance. 

Eloise Mart thanked the school and Helena Lunt gave some flax flowers she made.
