In room 5 today we started learning waiata. The first waiata we learned was called E TORU NGA MEA. My Madge played it on the ukulele while students sang. This waiata is about the importance of guiding your life by the principles of faith, hope and love – aroha. We discussed the concept of aroha where it means more than love, and the values of whakapono, tümanako, and aroha. You can listen to our first attempt here.
