My Pepeha

In class we had to write a Maori pepeha. I wrote mine in Cook Island Maori because that's my culture.

Tera pa-ia I te Uru Awatea
Te tahirihiri-ra it te motu o Arai-Ava

Kia orana tatou katotoa
ite aroa maa'ta o to tatou Atu, Iesu Mesia 

Ko Stephen Haydon taku papa
Ko Jane Rairi Matangi taku mama
Nga maunga Te-Manga me Ikurangi
Ko Moanui-O-kiwi taku moana
Ko Allessandra Eden Toreka Haydon taku ingoa.

Growth Mindset

In Rm 5 we have been working on Growth Mindset. Mrs Drummond gave us different parts of a sheet and put them together to make a brain that says Growth Mindset. On the sheets we wrote what we were  struggling with. We never give up and keep trying. We had so much fun doing it and colouring part of the brain. We put them together to make a brain and displayed it in our class.

In Peace and Unity at Zayed College for Girls

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
Peace, Mercy and Blessings of God be upon you

An invitation to join Zayed College for Girls in Peace and Unity. This is one of the schools my mum works in.  

In the Entrance of the hall was a Wall of Hope where we could leave messages In Peace and Unity

 My cousin Seihara and I left messages of blessings and comfort

Sister schools from around Auckland City sent messages of love to Zayed. I saw messages from Baradene and Dio

 Inside the school hall the students at Zayed had displayed a heart of messages for the 50 who had died in Christchurch.

Me and Seihara will be on 3 news tonight

Waka Ama 2018/2019 - WAITAKERE!

In the holidays I went to Cambridge for Wakaama Nationals and it was live on TV like Moari Television and the news. I'm in Intermediate girls team and we have different colored teams like Ma which is white , Pangu which is black and my team KAKARIKI which is green. The rules for our race was we get a number and we need to find the lane but if you go into an others teams lane then you are disqualified. In 3...2...1 Go! and we were off paddle so hard and then it was finished we came Third. When we finished our race we found out that the other team flipped we were so shocked and we also found out that they were a new team and it was there first ever race that they had done. I had so much fun hanging out with my best friends and even though we didn't come 1st I had the best time racing.

Blues Win!


On Friday me and mum went to the Blues vs. Highlanders game at Eden Park. Mum had to work and I helped her! My job was to count all the passengers in our van, mum drove them to and from the game. We met Matt, Juan, Estefania and mama Alicia at the game. It was mama Alicia's first time at a rugby game and the Blues won!!! Mama Alicia must be a lucky charm for the Blues! 

Rarotonga Wedding

Congratulations to Aunty Julie & Uncle Roy 

While in Rarotonga for my Papa Ra's funeral my Aunty Julie married her partner of over 20 years Uncle Roy. Papa Ra was suppose to give Aunty Julie away but because he died my mum's brother Uncle Poanere stepped in and did the honors. 


I'll miss you my Papa Ra

On February 24th 2019 my Grandpa Papa Ra passed away. I went to Rarotonga to pay my respects and say my last goodbyes to my Papa Ra. Everybody in Rarotonga knew my Papa Ra because he was a teacher, principal, member of parliament and broadcaster. He loved all his grandchildren the most!

Moe ra e taku Papa
Moe ra e moemoe ra
Ka tuku au to rima 
Ki runga ite Atua 
Nahana koe e tiaki
Nahana koe tauturu 
E moemoe ra 
moe ra 
moe ra
moe ra

💕 I'll miss you my Papa Ra
