We didn't give him a ceremonial welcome when he approached the school. This was left for the children of the school, as it was their school, their marae and their Maoritanga that was on show-theirs and their parents'.
My congratulations to Mr and Mrs Cassidy. Mr and Mrs Rountree, Mr and Mrs Va'aulu, Mr Laupama and others for making the Kaiwharawhara School Open Day such a success. Also, it was the presence of the Minister of Maori and Island Affairs that added the final touch.
