Harakeke- Our School Whanau

 The harakeke (flax) plant represents the whānau (family) in Māori thought. The rito (shoot) is the child. It is protectively surrounded by the awhi rito (parents). The outside leaves represent the tūpuna (grandparents and ancestors). Room 8 & Room 7 are the ‘Rito’ and the ‘Awhi Rito’ are our parents and teachers. The grass are our school friends. On the harakeke rau (leaf) we shared how we can be kind and on the ‘Korari’ we shared how we can show respect.
