Te Ahu a Turanga Noho Marae

Description:  In week 7, we had an overnight stay at the local Marae in Woodville.  We were immersed in Maori culture and participated in a range of activities.  We set two goals to focus on during our stay.
Big Idea:  
1.  Did you achieve your goals? Yes. How do you know? Yes I did get to sleep when I was told.

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why? When I was doing my job because I didn't muck around.

3.  What challenged you the most and why? The waving because I tried hard and I put myself in the pit.
