I believe the future is for the young to be prepared and able to develop into caring available to our young Maori. There are many avenues available to our whanau to compete in education, politics, trades, leadership rolls, science and many more. Marae commitment to whanau, and working with other marae’s as we are all connected. For me a happy marae overflowing with aroha for all.
