We simulated a river current, to experience what a current feels likes, how quickly the water can carry you away, and how difficult it is to swim against the current. We learnt a survival swim stroke to help us swim when we are tired in the water. A valuable skill, thank you Whaea Nikki @ Top Energy Swim Safe for the lesson.

We are learning to see ourselves as rangatira (a leader). Our inspiration comes from our mini-study of the people who shaped our great nation Aotearoa at Waitangi in 1840. What might they think of present-day Aotearoa 2018? We will never know. We focussed on, what is a leader and what are their characteristics? We then compared their qualities against ours. We noticed many similarities and differences between us. Using pencil and paper, we drew our self-portrait from the inside, out.
So far we have drafted ideas on paper using Maori designs.
Here is Awatea with her impression. Her art looks like it is coming to life.
