Kia mau tonu te tūmanako

Our PENN Movie this term is about Never losing hope. We discussed the meaning of Hope.
This is what the students said: 
it's how you feel, sometimes it's sad, never give up, when something happens to you, a wish, Love, Aroha, help, being kind, talking, forgive. 
Two days before Lockdown we filmed parts of the movie and given the situation the country is in now, I thought this was appropriate for this time.    
        This is our hope tree we made leaves and wrote our feelings on them. We will continue to add more leaves throughout the year.


  1. Kia ora to The Block,

    I really loved your movie as it shows how much you have thought about our school value for this year: Kia mau tonu te tumanako, never lose hope. I also like the way you were so kind, caring and sharing whilst making your Hope tree. Awesome work everyone!
