What can you tell me about this whare?Think of what you saw,felt and heard.I heard lots of people singing their lovely karakias.I saw lots of yummy pies,cake,sausage rolls,oranges and finally the delicious apples.

Every marae has protocols and rules that you must follow while you are there.  Listen to the tangata whenua and write down the rules that you are to follow while you are at Tuhuru.  Present it as a poster on this page:
(Me pēhea)
You must alway show respect by sitting down listening to the person who is talking.


Never run in the whare,never take food in the whare the food stays in the wharekai.Never wear shoes in the whare and the wharekai the wharenui.

I learned that the all the  sculptures have a story to them.The thing I enjoyed the most was eating the delicious food and drinking the fresh water, the second thing that I enjoyed the most was doing the hongi.Something that was a challenge was understanding the different words and doing a hongi for the first time in my life!!I feel like I learned a lot more about Te Ao Maori.I am really proud of doing the hongi and talking the people at the marae.I want to learm more about the maori laungage.
