He mihimihi ki ngā kura tuatahi o Pōneke…

E whakawhetai ana te whānau o Te Rākau ki a koutou ngā Kura, ngā Pouako me ngā Akonga i whai wāhi ki tā mātou hōtaka Kapa Haka o tērā tau. Kāre e kore, ahakoa he wā poto, he wā tongarewa. Ki a koutou ngā tamariki: ahakoa nō hea, ahakoa ko wai, he rangatira mō āpōpō koutou. Nō reira, kaua koutou e wareware ko te reo rangatira me te mahi a te rēhia he taonga tuku iho mō ngā tamariki katoa o Aotearoa. Kia kaha, kia pukumahi, kia harikoa i ngā mahi katoa i te kura, arā, Tama tū, Tama ora, Tama noho, Tama mate! Mauri ora!
