We had the most joyful stay at Ken's,

Carlyle Beach Motor Camp 

9 Beach Road, Patea, Taranaki 4520

Contact: Ken Bentley - 9 Beach Road, Patea – (06) 273 8620 

Thank you Ken for hosting the World Harmony Run team in the cabins at your motor camp, you have a generous heart which we all appreciated. We also all enjoyed meeting you and the conversations we shared. 

Turuturu School, Hawera where the World Harmony Run team met the Mayor of Hawera, Mayor Ross Dunlop.


The Mayor welcomed the World Harmony Run team to Hawera.

We showed the World Harmony Run DVD to the children.

They made a wish for world harmony!

The children all touched the torch.



St Joseph's Primary School, Hawera.

The children were eager to ask the World Harmony Runners questions.

They learnt the actions to the "World Harmony Run Song".


And made a wish for world harmony.

Oh the joy!!!

Everyone gets to touch the torch!

And run with the World Harmony Team.


The team then ran down the road to Mokoia School.

The children met us at the gate. 

They sang us a beautiful song.

Which we all enjoyed!


We told them all about the World Harmony Run.

We all sang the World Harmony Run song with actions!

And gave the children World Harmony colouring in books.

They passed the torch from hand to hand.

And ran with the World Harmony Run team.


The next school we ran to was St Joseph's School, Patea.

Two boys welcomed us to their school.

We all did the actions to the World Harmony Run song.

A pray for peace and harmony spread throughout the world.

The children showed us their beautiful World Harmony art work.

We gave them some World Harmony colouring books.

Thank you St Joseph's for such a warm welcome.


Patea Area School... 

A traditional Maori welcome.

And reply.
