Te Ahu a Turanga Noho Marae

Description: In week 7, we had an overnight stay at the local Marae in Woodville.  We were immersed in Maori culture and participated in a range of activities.  We set two goals to focus on during our stay.

 Big Idea:  
1.  Did you achieve your goals?  How do you know?
I achieved all my goals at the marae. I know this because I completed all the rotations and I joined in, in every activity they threw at me. Both my goals in my camp diary were achievable. 

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why? 
I am proud of staying at the marae because I have never, ever stayed in a building, sleeping over night with about 70 people. But even though It smelt like deodorant in one end of the room, and my bubblegum spray in the other half I still had fun.

3.  What challenged you the most and why?
The most challenging thing at the marae was waking up. I woke up super early (a bit earlier then usual on a school day ) with Rileigh-Kaye and we couldn't go back to sleep. So we just lay there waiting for maybe an hour and a half. Now that was challenging!

  1. Olivia, you were a pleasure to take away to the Marae. I found sleeping in the wharenui challenging too, your bubblegum spray at least made it smell nice though! Did you have a spray that could have stopped the snoring? Thanks for being so descriptive in your responses.
