Waka Ama

This is a traditional Waka Ama boat.
Yesterday (Monday the 17/06) we visited Huntly College to participate in a few activities. They included Maori culture- learning a Maori song and some actions, army training- which was different! We had to listen to our instructor's 'commands' and be really disciplined! Mountain biking around the lake and dirt biking through a short track, and the last activity was Waka Ama, where we learnt how to row properly, and we learnt a traditional Maori chant to sing while we were rowing! My favourite activity of the day would have to be either rowing the Waka Ama, or learning the Maori song! I learnt heaps of new things, and I thank Josh and Huntly College for showing us these new skills!


  1. Wish i was there - I love learning maori action songs!

  2. A good reflection. I really enjoyed my day too Sophie, if only it were a little bit sunnier!!
