The story of Te Rauparaha.


This is the story of Te Rauparaha, the creater of the most well known haka today. It is the Haka Ka mate which is what the All Blacks use before a rugby game. My class was told this story from our Maori Teacher Whea Raewyn. All of the girls got one part from that story and had to re-write it and animate it in our own way, and then the boys had to animate one or some of the all blacks doing the Haka. Te Rauparaha was the chief of his tribe the Ngati Toaragatira. He was the most feared of all and was confronted with great respect, but his neighboring tribes were out to get him as they had been fighting for years and years. Te Rauparaha was running away from his enemies and came to a place called Motuopuhi and asked the local chief Te Whareangi to hide him. After a lot of hesitation Te Whareangi finally agreed and told Te Rauparaha to hide in one of his kumara pits. Te Whareangi asked his wife to lay her cloak down and place her legs on top of the kumara pit. But I am Saying too much so just watch my movie and there you will see the end of Te Rauparaha's Story.

The Big Question.

How will the Rugby World Cup Benefit New Zealand Economically and/or socially?

I think that the Rugby World Cup will benefit New Zealand............

ECONOMICALLY- As we will be getting quite a lot of money from the Rugby World Cup tickets and merchandise, that can be used for many things. For example, the money given or funded by people can be used towards children's schools, to get things that they need like, Better or bigger building/ Class rooms. Also it can be used to get better learning tools for New Zealand kids to have better educations. Though it is not just the Children that need the help and the money, the people in Christchurch need it as well, and we all know why that is!!! So I hope that the government and the rest of the important people that are thinking of what to do for New Zealand and its future after think about what I have previously said. Thank you.
