Te Taiao o Tamaki Celebration

Today students across Manaiakalani are sharing their learning about Te Taiao o Tamaki at the Te Oro Arts Centre in Glen Innes.

While back at school, the students of the Pav watched the live stream of the event and spent some time blogging about what they have seen.

Watching the live stream.

Blogging about what we have seen.

Some lucky students from the Pav were able to take a bus down to Te Oro and spend time looking at the various exhibits that each school put together.  






We have really enjoyed learning about Te Taiao o Tamaki this term, along with the rest of the Manaiakalani cluster.

A Work of Art

As seen on Eva's Blog:

A part of Te Taiao o Tamaki our reading were reading a play called a work of art in the play some students found piles of rubbish at the park and diced to pick it up and put it in the bins unflinchingly the piles of rubbish were actually a piece of instillation art to remind people of what being a guardian of there community  just like we are learning about kaitiakitanga i nga wa katoua this year as a school we are the guardian of our environment next we read a new articular artist in  about artist in Auckland who had there installation art removed because someone thought that it was a pile of rubbish constructed by the homeless for shelter. 

Looking at all our new Chromebook boxes we decided to make our own instillation art we had so much fun working together to create our very own sky tower using the Chromebook boxes.

Cree Ann: The River Talks

As seen on Cree Ann's Blog:

My whole class and the year 8s went down to the Creek so we can see people from different countries performing what talent they got and why we need to do to look after our lovely creek.At first,there was a man that introduced us to everybody that was performing. His name was Tamati and he was wearing waders so the yuck water didn’t get on him. When he was done introducing us to them,we watched this lady pretending to make a fire, so she can pretend to burn the  that lived in the river like, dead lady's dress but not for real. The lady that was making a fire was singing a scary song that I was kind of scared of, but Then she stopped and the other lady stopped dancing.then it was time to go to the next thing.The next thing we saw was a man and two ladies, talking about our river to see what we could do to help our river. So they sang a lovely song about the river. After that, we listened to the man that was talking about the fish and all the other stuff that lived in our river like ducks, but most importantly our kaimoana cause apparently they have been getting sick that's why we need to look after our kaimoana and all the other stuff that lived there.
Meanwhile, before we left the creek, we watched Mr Vogt do his speech about the weta hotels that we made. He said if you make one of these  the hang it on the harakeke bush because wherever you hang it the birds will see it and then eat them. { which is sad} but after that we watch these cook islander play the drums about the river. There sound effect  sounded AWESOME but then it was lunch time and we had to go back to school. It was so cool that I wanted to go again but we couldn't because they have to go to a diffrent school I think?
