Tena ra koutou,
Ngaa Rauuira is our son, a big brother, mokopuna, uri, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, fellow student and protege.
I just want to thank everyone for their positive and encouraging comments. Education for all children is one of the most important opportunities that we can create for them no matter how lofty the mountains are. I hope that the message we as a family are promoting is being heard and considered, that is - A Maori Education Pathway is a way forward for those who wish to aspire in the same way, Kohanga Reo, Kura Kaupapa Maori, Whare Waananga and beyond. Kia Kaha tonu atu!

Nga Rau-Wira deserves such a bright future. He is charismatic, humble, and will bring freshness and diversity to such a historic and prestigious school. Truly inspiring, I wish him all the best!
