A Beautiful Day!

The last day of Te Kotahitanga training was a treat. There were more workshops but the highlight was Bart's talk about his journey with Te Kotahitanga. It was moving, inspirational and hopeful. It seems that there has been a very positive reponse from our staff. I had to make my farewells before the end but was able to present some wine to our awesome presenters/facilitators and to our kaiawhina, Mere.

I raced off to the PrizeGiving for Ashbrook school which was tinged with sadnes because of the death of one of their teachers, Kath, a kuia of a few of our kids. It was still a nice event, with the highlight being Lucy!!!! being announced as their Dux!!!!!

Takes after her father!!!

The school year is almost over but not time to rest yet. Quite a few hours to do tomorrow to prepare for our final staff day on Monday, our big farewell evening for Adrian, Marg and Heremaia on Saturday night, and a possum ride on Sunday which I will report on.
