The teams from Central Kids Garaway and Strathmore in Whakatāne continue to work closely together with Jacqui Johnston in a leadership role over both kindergartens.
Our collective team took part in a team building/well-being activity of Waka Ama paddling. Raanj Rapana, Kaiwhakahaere for Mataatua Sports Trust took great care of our wahine, from safety precautions, to paddling techniques and encouraging laughter.
Not only was it an enjoyable afternoon, it also helps us in connecting with our wide community outside the kindergarten. Other team activities have included yoga and a ‘kiwi walk’ around the Whakatāne town centre.
“He waka eke noa… We’re all in this together team!”
