Totara are almost 1 hour into their 40 hour famine challenge. A huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored our tamariki and donated to their efforts. Their original goal was to raise $1,500 - they are currently are sitting on $2,200. A huge effort! Hopefully they are ready to push on through to 12pm Sunday.
If you would still like to donate, you can. Just click on the link. Thank you once again for all your support.

Ka rawe!!!!! Our whare is now complete. Gary, our very talented caretaker, has spent many weekends working on this. The results are well worth the wait. The whare sits alongside our waka. In the springtime we will landscape this area. I can’t thank Gary enough for the extra time he has given to create this beautiful whare for our tamariki for many years to come.

We had the most wonderful breakfast together this morning. Thank you to the PTA and staff who helped put this together. After breakfast we planted a totara tree and kowhai to mark the occasion. Thanks to Kiwiflora in Templeton for kindly donating these to us.
