This term we have been learning about Maori rituals and their importance. We went to a powhiri to learn more about what it was.
At the start of the year I was completely stuck and didn't know what the teachers were talking about so I was prestructural, because that meant I didn't understand and enjoy participating in a Maori ritual.
After we had been to the powhiri I felt more multistructural which means I understood and enjoyed participating in many parts of a Maori ritual. I enjoyed going to the powhiri at Willowbank.
Then we did a little bit more work on Powhiri and I improved a lot because I moved up to extended abstract, which means I act as a role model for others to help understand and enjoy participating in many parts of Maori ritual.
