I just want acknowledge the service and kaimahi of Kahui Tu Kaha who continously wrapped their korowai around the needs of tangata, whanau & community. This organization continues to meet the needs & provide supports for others.
We recently lost our Hereana Roberts one of our leaders and a tutor of the Kapa. This mihi goes to our Kapa whanau (those who were in Rarotonga) and those athome.her whanau (Uncle Tom and Aunty Miri and whanau), and her whanau, hapu, who endured this tragedy with such strength.
Thankyou for supporting the minorities. Thankyou for respecting those less fortunate. Thankyou for caring.Thankyou for helping others to help themselves. Thankyou for allowing us to thrive.Thankyou for hearing the voices usually muted.Thankyou for being you.
Ngā mihi nui ki ngā kaiako,
A huge thank you to all the teachers who have kept our tamariki and rangatahi safe during these trying times. You have adapted, taught online, adhered to Covid guidelines, shown great patience, manaaki and aroha while also managing your own whānau and well-being.
When we had COVID, I was worried about how to look after everyone else while I was sick. It was such a blessing to have my GP ringing me at home to see how everyone was. She went above and beyond to get us through. Ngā mihi Dr Angela Lawson.
Thank you for creating the opportunity to give back to our communities and working alongside manawahine who have so much more to give in this world. I am truly loving the flourishing relationship and the grounding i get from my wonderful mentee who inspires me to shine brighter each week!
