Our next ceremony took place in a school church

Wishing for peace on earth

A fond farewell...

Back on the road...

We were warmly welcomed to Kotemari school, which had joined with a neighbouring school to meet us

The students decorated a tree with poems and artwork about peace

About to read a poem from the heart

Kids sharing their aspirations for a better world

Our hands got a bit sore by the end of the day...

"How many fingers am I holding up?"

From the garden of nature....

...to the playground of man

A moment of silence before our next school presentation

Traditional Maori statues are common in this part of the country

Hands up if you like harmony?

Enjoying a cuppa or two

Testing out the new track
