Maori Youth Visit St. John's

A group of 8 adults and 11 children from a Maori school in Tuhoe, Aotearoa/New Zealand stayed in Ho‘okaho Hall from November 16 to 26, 2012. For many of the children this was their first time away from their village. After one Sunday service, Aunty Lois enjoyed teaching them some hula down in the hall while Ruth Shiroma Foster played ukulele.

We also hosted a group from Hamilton (NZ) Boy's High School in Ho'okano Hall from September 26 through October 5, 2012. They sang an anthem during the Offertory for the Eucharist on Sunday, September 30, and then performed for us down in the hall while we all enjoyed a hearty lunch together.
