Last week, Room 19 had a good opportunity to go to Omaru Creek to pick harakeke which means flaxs to make Putiputi (flower). As we were walking down to Omaru Creek I could smell the fresh air and hear the birds. I could see all kinds of tree’s there were roots everywhere and flax busher’s that went all the way down to the creek.
When we got to Omaru we sat down and Miss tito told us the rules for using flax. Miss tito said if there's three that are together is the main part because the in the middle of the three is a baby that should not be cut because if it is cut the whole bush dies.
I went to go and cut my flax. I went back and sat down after everyone had finish. We walk back to school. I really wanted to go and make a putiputi but I went to the library I hope I can do it next time.
