We use our mihi to introduce ourselves. It helps others to know where we are from and to see if there are any connections. We have been working hard to learn the RSS mihi and have created some art to go with it.
We were inspired by our trip to the Marae last term and the way koru are used as part of a pattern to tell stories. In our art we have used koru to represent the people in our families. We have chosen their favourite colours to add another detail to our story. We chose a background for our koru to help share our connections.
- My art tells a story about me
- I can say the Mihi clearly
- I use expression when I speak
How I am going
My art tells a story about me

I really like: that I added my brother and mum in my art.
It was really hard when: draw and do the painting
Something that really helped me was: that Debbie helped me put my art onto my river
You thought about your family and colours they like to create a beautiful piece of art that tells a story. Thank you for being a leader when we were learning the Russell Street Mihi. Saying the mihi in pieces helped to make it easier to rememebr and you helped us to learn how to say the mihi correctly. Kapai Jaxon!
