Long ago, before the time of our great, great grandparents, the Maori children would come to play in the native bush that covered the hills of Woodlands. The children would fashion swings from the supplejack vines, laughing and singing as they played. The word 'aka' means vine and the word 'tarere' means to swing. Now when we sing our school song we refer to the Maori name given to the former playground we now know as Woodlands - Te Akatarere
Ko te Akatarere
Ko te Akatarere This is the song of the E waiata atu nei children of the swinging vines E te iwi greetings to Kia ora ra you all.
Ko Matiti te maunga Matiti is our mountain Ko Waioweka te awa Waioweka is our river Ko Whakatohea te iwi e Whakatohea is our tribe
No reira e hoa ma Therefore our friends Hapainga nga mahi we remember the O a tatou tupuna efforts and treasures of our ancestors Kua ngaro ki te po ... who have gone before us.
