Waiata

A resource page of Waiata that students & staff sing at Methven Primary School.

Making Pathways to the Stars

With the support of Mr Andy Straight, a group of students of 2016 decided to write and perform a new school song for Methven Primary School.

Students went through the process of choosing lyrics that would represent the uniqueness of our school and local community. The lyrics also incorporate our MPS STARs and our local maunga (mountain) and awa (river) to describe our place in New Zealand.

The music was then co-created and recorded with soloists chosen from a number of keen volunteers. The video that was later recorded includes many of our MPS Students and a BOT member sharing their many talents.

We thank Andy for all his hard work in leaving us with a school song that symbolises our pride in MPS.
