The MAGIC of Kapahaka Road trip...

Today we took our re-launched Kapahaka trip on tour.  What a privilege and a pleasure to be part of such an awesome experience.  The entire day was a wonderful experience and I look forward to posting the participants reflections next week.  In the meantime I wanted to acknowledge those who made the day possible... A HUGE thank you to you all!
  • Stacey and John Peita for re-launching Kapahaka;
  • Chance and John for your inspiring korero;
  • Stacey and Mary for leading our waiata;
  • Addie Dale and the Tokomaro Kapahaka group for inviting, hosting and inspiring us;
  • The Strath Taieri extended community for the welcome, the time and the food;
  • The parents who accompanied us and shared the celebration of the day;
  • The wonderful St Mary's Kapahaka participants - your participation, involvement and behaviour made us all so incredibly proud;
  • Our wonderful senior students who fully embraced the experience and cared for our younger students;
  • The Strath Taieri Weather!  
What a truly amazing day.  We now look forward to continuing our learning journey and preparing for Hui Ako, Polyfest and hosting Tokomaro at our school later in the year.

What a privilege for me to be part of this MAGICAL journey.  I have eagerly anticipated and encouraged this re-launch!  It is indeed a privilege to experience our cultural richness...
