Waipaoa Station School - Primary

Nau mai haere mai.

Welcome to the first chapter of our trilogy on Identity.
The first chapter has two components, Ko au - Who we are and secondly researching about a significant person and event of the local area.

In a small rural school all but one of the students is from the local area. The purpose was then to learn about who we are through our pepeha or mihi and share this with our school and the wider community.

We then learnt and reseached the local iwi and an important chief within the iwi.
