Kohanga Open day

Kia ora whanau!
Well we had a wonderful time at our open day on Saturday, 28 March.
More than 90 people came along to tautoko the day and to learn, share and enjoy, whakawhanaungatanga.

Kia ora to those who organised the event – particularly the members of Ngati Kotahi ra and the committee of Te Kohanga ote whenua hou – and for all our ringawera on the day, tino tumeke a koutou mahi me kai!

We enjoyed the company of members of the local neighbourhood, Police Liaisons Officers from the Northside, whanau from across Brisbane, Playgroup Qld and our local BCC member for Marchant Ward, Councillor Fiona King.

Keep an eye on our blogsite this year, when we announce an exciting new development for our kohanga – Playgroup Maori style!
