"Kia ora Denise,Trudy, Marriene, Christine,Ross, Frank, and Gavin,
Thank you so much for such fine warm welcomes to Hoana being in your schools.
She absolutely loved being with you and the children and is committed to being back
in schools for longer working with the learners in the week 7…11 November.
Hoana has been singing your praises in important places as she has been so impressed
with the wonderful commitment that you all have to one another and your fine leadership which
is making positive impacts on maori and all students in your schools.
You are a star MAC model!
Congratulations and celebrations." Ros McQuillan-Mains
"Tena Koutou Katoa. Ka nui te mihi ki a Koutou. Thank you for the precious time I spent with you all as a group and also as individuals in your schools. I was so very impressed with what you are doing down there. I believe you could show the rest of the country a thing or two! Please take time to celebrate your achievements - changing school culture and practices is not easy but you have all made a commitment to this and the results are evident. It is a privilege to work with you all." Hoana
