Noho trip
When we got to the marae we got welcomed on by Whaea Cathie who did a karanga to us. After that  we  made our beds and put away our bags as quick as we could.  We then got into activities.  The first one I did was weaving the putiputi.  It was hard but I still enjoyed it.  I was happy with my end result and I gave it to my Mum.  I also learnt the rako sticks and a waiata.  The last activity was wood carving - this was my least favourite because it was too hard.  

I enjoyed dinner.  There was heaps of yummy food thanks to the parents.  I helped do the dishes after dinner.  All of us boys slept together in a cramped room.  It was hot and noisy but I had a good sleep.  I have stayed at my marae in Kawhia called Waipapa but it is not as flash as Purekireki Marae.  

The trip was finished with a team swim back at school.  This was a good way to finish on such a hot day.
