The Learning journey for the children of Raumati Beach SchoolWharemauku – House made of flax
A drop of water (kopata wai) flows from the Maungakotukutuku Valley over the land through the township of Paraparaumu along the Wharemauku Stream. As it moves along the stream it gathers knowledge and grows on its journey to the sea (Te Moana).
Te Moana – The Sea
The drop of water (kopata wai) leaves the shelter of the Wharemauku Stream and now becomes part of the sea. It is pushed and pulled towards Kapiti Island in the distance and is continuing to gather knowledge on its journey to the Island.
Kapiti – Join
As the (kopata wai) drop of water moves towards Kapiti Island it is pulled into the sky by the sun (ra) and taken to the peak of the island where it is dropped. From the peak of the island (Tuteremoana) the water drop (kopata wai) is able to look out across the Tasman Sea and imagine the wonders of the world and learns that its journey into the world is just beginning and that it will continue to grow and gather knowledge as it ventures into the world beyond the Kapiti Coast.
