Otaki, it’s my home town …. A poem

A visit to Year 7 and 8 students at Otaki College this morning and we did heaps of poetry in the hall. We made up this poem together about Otaki. The students said it was a beautiful place to be and they were lucky to live here. The poem shows this so well. It was a great session. Thank you.


Sunny Otaki
golden sand and calm waves
white batters, pipi, cockles
the river, rough stones and sand dunes
Aunty Finns huge chicken burgers and deep-fried ice cream
T Street Park, slides and swings
a view of Kapiti Island, shiny, magnificent, spectacular
sports players, rugby and league
Otaki Cinema, the film festival
It’s my home town.
