Kia ora koutou katoa
What a long break it has been, lots of work, projects and whanau inbetween to keep the mind busy and put the challenge on for the year 2013.
I hope all of you had an awesome holiday and are glad to be back into the usual swing of things. What Karen Carpenter would say, “We’ve only just begun” and although this is the final year of study for some of us, our journeys are sure to continue and guide us to the places we ought to be, the things we need to learn and some of the people we need to meet in order to learn great things. So brace yourself for the year ahead, its going to be a busy, challenging year but rewarding at the same time, so keep at it and never give up. Climb that maunga to the light of success and find fulfillment within yourself and nothing will be able to stop you.
Getting on with it, this is just a brief korero to share with you all some of the images I captured on the 2nd day of Wananga out Whangara.. the Hikoi up the maunga ‘Pukehapopo’ where there sit carvings paying reference to tupuna of the area and also where you get an awesome view of the bay out Whangara and the wahi tapu ‘Te Toka-a-Rangi’.
In these photos you will also see a mixture of both Senior and Junior Students up to no good, I mean enjoying the beautiful environment and the glisten of Tangaroa also gathering ideas for drawings that will dazzle the walls of Maia Gallery at the end of Term1 for our first Exhibition of the year at Toihoukura. So enjoy as we did the view and the experience of being on Pukehapopo.
