Ngā Hau Ngākau (Breath of Mine) is an immersive exhibition that uses painting, sculpture, and sound to create an experience that delves deep into Māori storytelling.

Junior Students (New entrant – Year 10) 

This exciting exhibition will give students many options for creative thinking and expression. In particular we will look at using taonga puoro (traditional Māori musical instruments) and learn about the sounds and stories they can tell. Practical hands on activities will accompany this lesson.
