Kia ora Whaitaima and Jeffrey,
Thank you so much for your inspiring performance for our tamariki on Friday morning.
The tamariki and the teachers enjoyed your performance so much. I think for many it brought the Maori legends alive, unlike anything we have been able to provide for them.
Our tamariki often request their favourite legends and we have been for a visit to Hatupatu rock. This however gave such a powerful dimension and including the children to be part of
it by holding the bird and fish puppets made them feel very involved. You both read our children well and realised that they needed to move around. Moving to learn is something that we here
at Arohanui subscribe to. The tamariki enjoyed telling their whanau about your wonderful show and we are all looking forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
Thank you so much and Merry Christmas to you both
from the teaching team and tamariki at Arohanui.
