Te Kura Maori o Waioeka flew to the Chatham Islands intending to follow the footsteps of Te Kooti who was imprisoned on the Chatham Island during his younger days accused of illegal activities by Gisborne European traders.

The childern will also be involved in other activities such as the history of the Chathams which was known by the Moriori as Rekohu and sight seeing including the statue of Tommy Solomon the last full blooded Moriori

I wehe atu nga tamariki o Te Kura Maori o Waioeka i te taunga waka rererangi o Rotorua kia rere atu ki te moutere o Wharekauri. Ko te tikanga kei runga ratau me ō ratau pākeke i Wharekauri hei te rima haora o tenei ahiahi te tuangahuru o o Hakihea e whai ana ratau i nga tapuae o Te Koti Te Turuki. He wāhi a Wharekauri i herea a Te Kooti i tona wā oranga e whakapae ana he mahi tukino nana nā nga Pakeha o Turanga-nui-a-Kiwa. Otira tana wehenga atu i Wharekauri kua timata te pupu ake o te Hahi Ringatu e maumahara tonu ana i aianei. Atu i tera ka nui tonu nga take e whai ana i nga tamariki kia mohio hoki i nga korero nehera o Wharekauri ara hoki te ingoa Moriori ko Rekohu, otira te kitenga ma nga tamariki o Opotiki i te tekoteko o Tommy Solomon ko ia te mutunga ake o te toto Moriori tuturu i tenei aohurihuri.
