We had a very special presentation during our first class also. We have one student who is now Year 8 who attended last years classes. His name is Iisa Salie. Mr Gemmell and I wanted to do something special for Iisa because of his dedication and commitment shown last year. Iisa now has his very own taiaha which was named by Mr Gemmell - It's name is 'Tira', maybe you can ask Iisa about Tira?
We look forward to seeing the development of our students mau rakau skills. So, watch this space! They are currently learning the Ahai.
