Poi Porotiti is a Masterton Schools programme that focuses on Girls Leadership with girls from years 5 to 13.

The programme is supported by Masterton Trust Lands Trust and administered by REAP.

The purpose of the programme is to grow the leadership skills of our future young women.

We are lucky to have local tutors, Pania Reiri-Smith and Palais Douglas to teach the young women the skills they need to stand strong and be positive role models to their peers.

Waiata 3 – Papakitahi

Papaki tahi kia rite te takahi

Kia kori to tinana ngawari

Titiro mai ki taku poi e rere atu ra

Mauria mai te aroha

Kia mau te aroha me te mahi tahi

Kia eke nga wawata

Taku poi raupo e rere atu ra

Ki taku aroha

Kia rite, kia rite, kia rite Hi!

Nā Tommy Taurima

Waiata 2 – Ko koe te Rauhiitanga

Ko koe te rauhiitanga
Raahira mai ki a Hurunui-o-rangi
Kua ara, haere mai,
e te taonga o te aroha

Aue te mamae aue te aroha
aue te mamae aue te aroha

Korohiko mai te kaahui maunga
ranitaamiro mai o taatou tipuna
Homai raa te manaakitanga
o te runga rawa, o te atua

nā Palais Douglas

Kei mara te tarapuhitanga i ana to, to to ana ra.

Kaua huri kē, māku koe hei arahi
Tū mai ki taku taha, pupuritia taku ringa

Me titiro iho ana te rangi, kia whakawaihangatia tātou e
Kia tipu ake ngā putiputi o te whenua
Kia tipu ake tahi, tō mātou aroha

Waiata 3 – Pinepine te kura

Pinepine te kura, hau te kura,

Whanake te kura i raro i Awarua;
Ko te kura nui, ko te kura roa,
Ko te kura o tawhiti na Tuhaepo!
Tenei te tira hou, tenei haramai nei;
Ko te Umurangi, na te Whatuiapiti.
Nau mai, e tama, ki te taiao nei,
Ki’ whakangungua koe ki te kahikatoa,
Ki te tumatakuru, ki te tara ongaonga;
Nga tairo ra nahau, e Kupe,
I waiho i te ao nei.

Piki ake, kake ake i te toi huarewa,
Te ara o Tawhaki i piki ai ki runga;
I rokohina atu ra Maikuku-makaka,
Hapai o Maui, he waha i pa mai,
‘Taku wahine purotu!’ ‘Taku tane purotu!’
Korua ko te tau, e
