Diving Deeper Maori 

As part of our Diving Deeper programme, Mrs Wendt takes a group of  Year 4-6 children for two hour sessions over 5 weeks.  Our programme is focuses on tikanga me te reo Maori.  In the past we have made manu taratahi, puoro (clay flutes), researched Matariki and created podcasts of local Maori legends, created Maori artworks, flax flowers, and pou. We focus a lot on the significance, spiritual symbolism, tikanga in the preparation, design and creating stages.

Below is the link to our page to show our learning over the years.

Diving Deeper Art

In 2013 the diving deeper art group made mosaic tiles.  These will be used in the future as part of the Jesus Garden that is currently being planned.  It was a great experience working together and developing new skills to create these mosaic tiles.
