Playing For Coast's Rugby Team

On Saturday me and Liam played for the little coast rugby team. We only played for them because our Pirongia team had a bye. We had to be at Te Kuiti rugby fields before 10.30 am. We kicked off at 10.30 am. It was on. The little Coasties were playing. Taina had got tied so I had jumped on for him. I played the whole game without coming off but in the last 5 minutes I got sent off for a high tackle. But it was not my fault because the boy that I had tackled had got scared and fell and I cleaned him up. The referee was also on the other teams side and he started picking on me and Liam because he had noticed that we were a step higher than the other boys. But we still lost. NO GOOD.

Kia Orana mai Tahaaroa

 Rarotonga Here We Come 

Kia Orana, Kia manuia.
Our kura is going to Rarotonga next term so we've been learning about that island, it's language, culture, and it's people.  We've been learning their language.  It's very similar to our reo Maori so it's been easy pronouncing their kupu.  We can't wait to go.

Kia Orana Tahaaroa - E whiti ana a Tamanui-te-Ra ki runga i a matou nei.

This is our Village looking down from our classroom.  You can see our Community Hall, our marae Aruka, our tennis and netball courts, the rugby field, our homes, and a Perry Bus.  This is our Coastie home.
We are all Ngati Mahuta.
