Yesterday at Russell School it was Armistice Day.First Sharnita did the karanga to welcome the guests. Then we stood up to sing 'He Kakano Ahau'. Before we did 'He Kakano Ahau' we were suppose to do a haka, but we took so long that Whaea Rachelle started the songs.
We felt proud of the poem Nelisa, Willow and Fay wrote because they tried hard when practicing, and yesterday they did a great job saying it.
When the RSA forgot their words when singing their song we felt empathy. When they finished we clapped for them. We felt empathy when Tau lost his words, he kept trying and finished strong!
We remember Armistice Day to keep remembering the people who fought for us and our freedom.
