Ka Ngaro, Ka ngaro, Ka ea, Ka ea, Te toka a Tirikawa

I am lost I am lost, I am found, I am found, the rock of Tirikawa is my guide.
 
This whakatauki speaks of standing strong in the face of adversity.  In a world that is unknown and rapidly changing,
it is important to hold onto our values and let them guide us, like te toka a Tirikawa.

Our Vision

At Mount Maunganui Primary School, we endeavour to provide rich learning opportunities that connect our tamariki to our rohe through local waiata and pakiwaitara.  Our Mounties have a strong sense of belonging and a strong sense of self.

“I know who I am and where I come from.”

” I know the history of this place I call home.”

Kapa haka

We believe being part of a rōpū kapa haka gives our Mounties the opportunity to develop their confidence in performing in front of an audience. Kapa haka teaches them the importance of Aumangea – persisting at an activity that is new and challenging, and develops Mahi Tahi – working together and being a part of a team.

All of our learners have the opportunity to experience kapa haka.

E Hika Tū Ake

The story of Mauao

E hika tū ake 

Ki runga rā whitiki taua 

Hei tama tū 

Kumea ki te uru 

Kumea ki te tonga 

Hiki nuku 

Hiki rangi  

I arā rā 

Ka ngarue, ngarue 

Toia ki te hau marangai 

Kia whakarongo e

Taku kiri i te kikini a te rehutai 

0 ngā ngaru whatiwhati 

E haruru mai nei 

Wī wī wī 

Wā wā wā 

Horahia ō mata ki-a Mere Tū ahiahi e

Hei taki i te ara ki-a Tangaroa 

He atua hāo i te tini ki te pō 

E kokoia e ara e

Papaki Tū Ana

Papaki tū ana ngā tai ki Mauao

i nekeneke hia, i nukunuku hia

 

I whiua reretia e Hotu, 

a Wahinerua ki te wai, 

ki Tai wi wi, ki Tai wa wa,

Ki te whaiao ki te ao mārama

Tīhei, mauri ora
