Beststart Mangorei have a vision of making the world a better place. I can’t think of a better way to do this than through waiata, or song. We have Whaea Raewyn visit us every fortnight to teach and support us on our journey to learn waiata. To extend on this learning, and to support our tamariki it was decided that we would gather a small group of our tamariki from each of the three Beststart Centre’s in New Plymouth and have a performance.

But where could we do this? How would be get there?

The Green Door Café came to the rescue and kindly offered the space for us to gather and have our performance. Te pai kē! Fantastic!

We looked at the bus timetable and realised we could catch the bus as we normally would for our weekly Library visit. Our children are free to catch the bus and the bus stop is just outside our front door.

Our tamariki were amazing, so brave to stand in front of friends and family to perform their beautiful waiata. Our tamariki were capable, confident and competent in their performance. We were all so very proud of each and every one of them.
