Mehi - Our Experience on the Waitangi Trip - Waitangi Treaty grounds - Copthorne Hotel e.c.t...



Last week, we went on our Waitangi Trip. The reason why we went up north to the Bay of islands was because, we entered into a movie competition that was about the 'Treaty of Waitangi'. Our main/big question was 'WHY is the treaty of Waitangi still RELEVANT today?...' Our Movie was based on this question.. and the topics we studied were.. Protection... Participation and ... Partnership.. Well also known as the three 'P's'. The group that made the movie, were called 'The Royal Pages..' I was apart of that reading group. In the end we were the winners for the upper north students, which meant our reading group were able to go and stay up at the Copthorne hotel resort, but also, not only did we go, but the student council also came, which was fair because they've worked hard to be role models for our school and make good decisions as well. 

A highlight from the Waitangi trip would've been, Kayaking because we all got to bod together and work together as a team and my other highlight was the waka experience because Matua Hone taught us new hakas as we were paddling and he told us to don't be afraid to follow and chase your dream because he only got to follow his dream when he was 40 years old but he wished that he could've followed his dream earlier. But in the end it was so much fun and I would just like to say thank you very much to the sponsors who paid and actually made this trip happen, If it weren't for you guy's this great opportunity wouldn't have happened for us young adolescence.
