Our Treasure, Our Story...

One of the things we've learnt as we have been looking into our own Taonga, is that we are all different and although we may value a lot of the same things like family, we each have certain things that are special to no one else but ourselves.  Here are a few Taonga from Room 2.

When I made these slides and read them carefully to myself, I realised that family is one of the best things you can have in life.  I mean, what would you do without them?  I believe that you would be nothing without them and that they are very important to you. Aaliya

Running is a really fun thing to do and I love it.  I started running when I did the Cross Country, it wasn’t a big deal to me.  When my parents came to the Cross Country to see me, they saw that I was fast, but silly me, I wanted to just wait for my friends.  The next year I took it more seriously and came 1st.

My pandora bracelet is my Taonga because it holds a lot of  memories that are close to me and my family. For example, I have a charm that says ‘Sweet Sister’ that my younger cousin gave to me. Rhea
The drums are my favourite instrument to play. I've always wanted to play the drums ever since I first saw other people playing that were really good and one of my dreams is to become popular on Youtube and other social media sites. Rahul


My bunnies and my favourite books are really important to me .  They are my Taonga and I treasure them very much because they excite me and I never get bored reading my favourite books or playing with my bunnies.  Also, having pets has really helped me because it’s my responsibility to feed them, clean their huts and keep them healthy.  Also, reading those amazing books has made me more excited about reading.  Dawn
The Korowai is a traditional Maori cloak.  It can be used for special occasions like a funeral, graduating and finishing a mission.  Our korowai (my Taonga) has lots of feathers.  The white feathers are for the people who have passed away.  Espen



My Journey. I'll get to wear it when I graduate from AUT.
