Maori Lyrics:

Kaea: Ringa Pakia

Katoa: A hi

Kaea: Turi whatia,

Katoa: A hi

Kaea: Waewae takahia kia kino

Katoa: A hi

Kaea: Kia matou nga Kaiarahi mo apopo

Katoa: No nga hau e wha o Aotearoa matou

Kua tae mai matou ki te ope

Tu taua ki te riro nga matauranga i konei

Kaea: Ha aha nga matauranga

Katoa: Ko te pumau, ko te maia,

ko te whakawhanaungatanga, me ko te tautoko hoki,

ko enei nga taonga whakahirahira mo ta matou haerenga

Kaea: Nga raruraru kei mua i a matou

Katoa: Otira, ‘Whaia koe te iti kahurangi,

ki te tuohu koe he maunga teitei»

He mihi mutunga ki nga kaiako.

Mena, kahore koutou kia arahi,

kia awhina ki te rapu i ta matou huarahi, kua ngaro matou

Kaea: Kaikaha matou

Katoa: Takatu matou

Kia kaha matou

aue, aue, aue hi aue hi

Leader: Bend your knees

All: A hi

Leader: Stamp your feet as hard as you can

All: A hi

Leader: We are the leaders of tomorrow

All: We are from the four winds of New Zealand,

We have arrived at the NZDF to obtain the knowledge from here.

Leader: What is the knowledge

All: The loyalty, the confidence, the friendship, and also the support,

these are the important treasures for our journey.

Leader: There will be struggles in front of us

All: However, follow your treasured aspiration,

if you should bow your head let it be to a lofty mountain,

pursuing your dream and aspiration.

Lastly our acknowledgment to our tutor.

If you didn’t guide us to find our pathway, we would be lost

Leader: We are willing

All: We are ready

We are strong

Aue, aue aue, hi aue hi
