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;

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...
