Powhiri for Mr Henderson

Yesterday Newlands Intermediate brought us our new principal, Brendon Henderson.  We held a formal welcome for him where we exchanged songs and welcomed him to Tawa Intermediate.

What did you think about the powhiri? Did you learn/see anything new? Is it important to have a powhiri? Why or why not?

    What did you think about the powhiri?
    I think it was cool seeing the Newlands College and Newlands show us the haka they did it was very cool.

    Did you learn/see anything new?
    I saw that the new principal wearing A maori feathered coat and it remindered me of the maori chiefs wearing Huia feathers.

    Is it important to have a powhiri?
    Yes because it's a good way to greet and welcome people to our school.

  3. Hey,

    I 'm not sure what I think of the Powhiri. But It was cool seeing Newlands hand him over. I didn't see or learn anything new. I think it is important to welcome someone. But I don't think you need to have a Powhiri.
