Te Ahikaaroa would like to thank our rūnanga, whānau and friends who supported us on our trip to Greece in September. With your support we were able to send a group of 27 performers and nine support crew to a little Greek island of Lefkada, to participate in the 52nd Lefkada International Folklore Festival of Peace. It was a truly amazing experience, something each of us will carry for the rest of our lives.

This trip helped our performers learn a little more about not only being good performers but more importantly about being great entertainers. It has helped us build confidence, learn new skills and try things outside our comfort zone. These are all great building blocks as we start the training campaign towards Te Matatini 2015.

There are numerous stories that can be told however photos probably speak far louder. So, once again, thank you to everyone who helped us achieve this goal.
