Here's a few video highlights of our trip Wednesday to the Ngati Whai festival, aroha nui to our hosts and the organisers. Do to the weather we couldn't walk as we'd planned but Brun's Buses came to our rescue so a big thankyou to them, they really have looked after us over the years.

Watch and see if you recognise any past pupils, I do. Thanks for the big hug Kaitlyn Jo and Hope lovely to catch up, hi to Aiden and Harriet, and everyone else as well.
