Welcome to our class blog!

We are a class of year 7 and 8 students who attend a semi-rural school on the outskirts of Tauranga in NZ. We are excited to share our experiences and learning at Tauriko School. Check back regularly to see what we have been up to. We have a load of fun in our class and would love to share it with you!

Rā Whānau ki a Koe!

Well, yesterday we had an unusual happening in Room 6 - 3 people were celebrating their birthdays at the same time! We usually sing Rā whānau ki a koe but when we thought about it we realised that this wasn't quite right...because it was more than one person.

We had a think and decided that if there were 2 people we might sing Rā whānau ki a kōrua.

In the end we decided that since there were 3 people we should sing Rā whānau ki a koutou...so we did!

Then Mrs Te Whaiti did the roll and asked each person, "E hia ō tau?" The boys had to answer differently from last week. Here's what they said last week:

Ethan: E waru aku tau.
Mutu: E whitu aku tau.
Jed: E rima aku tau.

What did they say when it was their turn yesterday?


  1. Ethan:e iwa aka tau.

    Mutu:e waru aku tau.

    Jed:e ono aku tau.

    1. Ka mau te wehi, Vilah!

      We missed you yesterday while you were away at the funeral. Was it a tangi?
