Pou Blessing for Whanau House Art Installations
On Wednesday 31 May, the school held a whakawātea (blessing) for our new pou. The newly installed Whanau House Art Installations were designed by renowned Contemporary Māori and Tāmoko artist Ben Thomason (Tainui Waka).
The purpose of these displays, which are located around the Student Services courtyard is to further enhance biculturalism, engage our students and promote school culture and House pride. The lights are on display 24 hours a day and can be altered to suit occasions such as Waitangi Day and Matariki. We welcome you to come and view the Pou after school hours. Once the sun has set they take on an amazing glow brightening up this once dimly lit area. We look forward to featuring them in our upcoming Matariki celebration of light and stars.
