The Rena by Minardi Daniel (Maungatapu School).


In 2011 Maungatapu School's Room 13 (year's 2 & 3) wrote poetry in reaction to the Rena disaster. The poetry and posters appeared in a window display at Tauranga City Library.

The black icky oil stuck to the sand like some dough on the kitchen bench
Holding on tight as the Rena climbs higher on the Astrolabe Reef
Enough damage has broken through the whole of New Zealand
Rena full of containers starting to collapse
End the battle with the Rena and her oil
Nothing stopping the volunteers clean the oil with bare hands at the beac
All Blacks won but we are counting on the Rena to stay safe.
