Anna shared a moment

Anna Farncomb | May 2021

I live in Australia but I grew up in Panama Road, Otahuhu and attended Otahuhu College - 40+ years ago.
I live in Australia but I grew up in Panama Road, Otahuhu and attended Otahuhu College - 40+ years ago. The friends (whanau) in my life at that time have always welcomed me home with open arms and still include me in family celebrations. At that time very few of my friends spoke the Maori language. What a pleasure to see te reo Maori being honoured, respected and taught to all New Zealanders.
