The Hei Tiki tamariki of BestStart Kaikohe took on the challenge of walking all the way from our centre up to the top of Monument Hill! It was a 45 minute hike from the centre to the monument, which gave our tamariki a real sense of achievement when making it to the top! This was an opportunity for our tamariki to explore the memorial of someone very important to our area - Hone Heke! Nga tamariki were able to engage in discussion and investigation around who Hone Heke was and why he was so significant to the history of our area.
