Cultural Celebrations

2023 Term One


Week 1

Mihi Whakatau

On Friday, we welcomed new students and staff into our MWPS whānau with a mihi whakatau. For those new to our shores, a mihi whakatau is a traditional Māori welcome ceremony. The purpose of the mihi whakatau is to remove the tapu of the manuhiri (visitors) to make them one with the tangata whenua (Home people). It is a special process of the manuhiri and the tangata whenua coming together.

A warm welcome to our new whānau, we are so pleased you have chosen MWPS to serve your tamariki and whānau. The start to the 2023 school year has not gone as hoped, but in all things we celebrate our special moments & uplift others, extend manākitanga and foster a sense of whanaungatanga.
