Tamara shared a moment

My team and I (from mahi) went out for dinner lastnight.

My team and I (from mahi) went out for dinner lastnight. We went out to celebrate and commemorate our time as a team as unfortunately our teams are all changing as of Monday 12th July.

We've been a team for nearly 4 months and rapidly become a close knit team.

At dinner lastnight I talked about Matariki and the concept of Kaikōhau. We went around the table sharing oyr hopes and goals for the year to come.

When all our food arrived we did the Kaikōhau Karakia and talked through the Reo Pākēhā translation.

All 7 of my staff identify as non-māori so to see them share their hopes and goals, be open to learning about Matariki and sharing kai and time together as a team is something within my role, I'm really proud of.
