The Australian delegates took part in the traditional Powhiri - the Maori welcoming ceremony

"Whitiwhiti Korero" is Maori for "Conversation".

Dates:  July 8-11, 2017.

A memorable event where our New Zealand hosts welcomed the Australian delegates to their beautiful country and introduced them to the rich cultural heritage of the traditional people.

This was followed by 3 days of sharing by Caatholic School Leaders with Catholic School Leaders.
