Hei Konei rā

Please learn this song!  It is a farewell song Te Roopuu Whaanau composed 2 years ago to say goodbye to our Year 6s.  It's sending a message that we will be lonely without them but we send them off with strength, pride, laughter and dancing!

Hei konei rā                                                   Bye
e hoa mā                                                         friends
E haere atu                                                    going to
ki ētahi                                                           other
kura aaaaaaaaaaa                                         schools

E mokemoke                                                 we will be lonely
mātou
e hoa mā                                                         friends
kia kaha                                                         be strong
kia māia kia toa kia mana                           be confident, be brave, have prestige.


Chorus

kaua  eware ware koutou                         Don’t forget
he aha ōu akona                                         what have you learnt
ki te kanikani                                              to dance
ki te katakata                                              to laugh

whāia te iti kahuuu rangi e                       to strive for excellence.
