Melville Intermediate - R14's take on Boy

This is going to be updated shortly.

Room 14 Matariki Video: Poi E from myles webb on Vimeo.

In our classroom we have been learning lots about Matariki the traditional Maori new year celebration. One way of celebrating Matariki is by making this video, we used as our inspiration the movie 'Boy' the music in the video is the song Poi-E by the Patea Maori Clube. Report and filming by Tyler, Room 14.


  1. You guys must have had such fun recording this video- I loved it how the grown ups got into as well.

    We all thought that was a great way to celebrate and learn about Matariki. Some of us were trying to do the dance moves too. What a great idea, who came up with this? Great videography job too Tyler.

  4. And where is that Mr Webb in all of this??? Awesome video team! A very entertaining performance... Perhaps we could do a Poi E around the country for the last week of term?

  5. Why didn't Mr. Webb dance? I know he has sick moves!

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful video with us. I really enjoyed seeing how much fun you had creating this video and of course the adults participating in your filming.

    Ka pai to the girls with the Poi and of course I loved the caterpillar move that the boys performed all I can say is ' MEAN MAORI MEAN'

    Keep up the wonderful creativity.
