Te Puna School poems

The school was usual enough; it had a library, a court, 

a pool, some classes and even a boiler room 

 I never went to. Charlotte, Maggie and I ate lunch together, 

swam in the pool, chatted, swung like crazy on the monkey bars 

until we were dizzy, read, walked and talked. 

 Doing nothing important.

The school was usual enough; it had

a desk, playground, office, classrooms

and even a boiler room that I never went to. 

George,Oliver and I did what boys do, broke school rules, 

dismantled trees, demanded to play tag on the playground, 

fell off the flying fox, jumped or rolled.

Doing nothing unusual.

Te Puna School was usual enough;it had
A playground, a hall, a field, a library
and even a shipping container
I never went to. Shahni, Simone and I
Did what kids do- Talk while eating lunch, bounced the handball, played tag on the playground, quickly and quietly stole sticks from other peoples huts, complained about things, sprinted or swam,
Doing nothing important
