Support for Christchurch
Polyfest Samoan Group On Saturday last our Samoan group visited the Maich Road and Otahuhu Mosques to show their support for our Muslim communities. They wrote messages of support and hope.
Paper Chains Head Girl Porsha Sagote and Head Boy John Chen promoted and executed a Paper Chain initiative in support of Christchurch. During kaitiaki time this week students created interlink paper chains with messages of support. Some of these will be used at the student leadership hui today with the balance delivered to our local mosque.
