Since the beginning of the year, the majority of our kids at Kohatu Child Care have been learning about the differences between the Pacific Islands and the ocean currents in each island. For example, they were learning about how the stars sit differently in the sky in each Island. They also learning the different water temperatures and wind-currents.
Our kids are very keen navigators. We have traditional Waka Hourua. We’re restoring one at the moment and our kids have been on the one in Auckland.
In November, Kohatu are sending four of our tamariki to attend Hawaiki voyaging in Tauranga.
