This was the headline in the local paper the ‘Friday Sun’ 10th May. Last Tuesday May 7th, a client on our Wairau Koroua me Kuia programme, Coralie Jamieson, who regularly attends the weekly Noho Pakari/Tū Kaha session (Sit and be Fit) celebrated her 97th birthday.
A large group, numbering over 60 of the Noho Pakari rōpū arrived, brought kai to share for a hakari to wish Coralie well and mark this special occasion. She’s an outstanding role model at our Noho Pakari class & participates fully e.g. note she’s swinging her TPO poi above & singing.
Rā whānau kia koe Coralie.
