My Highlights for This YEAR!

Ko Ala toku ingoa, ko Maungarae toku maunga, ko tamiki toku awa, ko Pt England toku Kura. Hi ! As everybody knows my name is Ala . My Highlights through out this YEAR is  performing and taking part in our school production. 

      This year I think that through out this whole year I had performed like a Pt England school kid should have but I have been talking to much in the classroom when I am not supposed too but I think I'll wait for Christmas to see if Santa has put me on the good list!

  I think that I have been a good team member to my friends and to the classroom and especially to my wonderful teacher Ms Squires. Having this experience is really a special thing to me. I also think that it has been a fun ride being a year 5! Thanks allot Ms Squires!!!

Thinking back to term 1 I had finished all of my tasks that we were supposed to do this year for 2009.I feel really proud of my self to actually do these animations and then look back, to see what I have done!

What I need to improve for 2010 is to concentrate more on my exams to try and get a better mark from this year! Improving each day is my goal for next year!!

Even though it's hard and sometimes it is easy we just need to strive to succeed so we can reach for the STARS!!

Maori Land !

What they have Shared !
Maori people have now traditionally shared Aotearoa in a special relationship with whanau ( land ) from which cultural, spiritual , emotional and physical sustenance is derived .

Maori people define Themselves!

Maori people define themselves by their iwi (tribe), hapu (sub-tribe), maunga (mountain) and awa (river). Whanau is the name given to family - the term embraces immediate family, in-laws and all those connected by blood ties.

Benefit of Maori !

Land (other than Māori customary land) that has not been alienated from the Crown or benefit of Māori shall have the status of Crown land reserved for Māori.

Maori trustees !

Maori people choose trustees to look after the maori land because Trustees are appointed for life or such term as set out in the trust deed. Trustees can apply to the court to be removed - only the court can remove a trustee but it depens which trust it is.

Waiata !
Te aroha , te whakapono, te rangimarie, Tatou tatou e!
