Just wanted to share some photos and video of the official Powhiri today at school to welcome Hawthorndene school from Adelaide. The welcome was amazing and i was so proud of how well the choir and the whole school performed. It was spine tingling stuff and a wonderful way to welcome our special visitors from across the ditch. I loved their tongue in cheek performance of " We come from a land downunder!".
Please take the time to view the videos- i thought they were all amazing!
Tomorrow both schools perform at a full school assembly before heading into town to sing as part of the Kids in Town shows at the Restart Mall. If you are around come and check them out- they are also being featured in the Press and have a photo call tomorrow for that too!
Anyhoo here are the three videos...the first has the official welcome and welcome song and haka, the second after the talking is another song from us and the third is the song by Hawthorndene....
Weren't they great!
Thanks for watching
