Te Kura o Te Paroa from Whakatāne

On 8 October Arahura Marae welcomed Te Kura o Te Paroa from Whakatāne. It was a lovely afternoon spent with them, the waiata they sung was just beautiful. From here they travelled south to Franz Josef and further south then over to the east coast of the island. The kura usually do an annual hīkoi overseas however this year decided to travel Te Waipounamu.
