The Eden/Albert festival started with a great powhiri and set by the host school, Gladestone. Teena Koutou katoa mo te taukoto o taatou kaupapa. We were lucky enough to have a great day, with no rain clouds in sight.
Now, back to the outstanding performances. Owairaka stepped up to the plate, with our Indian, Samoan, Kapahaka and Tongan whanau o Owairaka taking their place on the day. This year, all performers trully owned the stage, celebrating our cultural diversities throughout the groups. A day to be remembered.
