At lunchtime some of us traveled back to the Porirua CBD for the launch of the Young Visionaries project at The Old McDonalds (which continues to be exhibited) with the principals, teachers, students and their families of Discovery and Russell Schools. Here Sose Annandale from Russell School speaks.

Then back to the pa, where after nightfall we followed navigation by the stars with Toa Waaka. Here’s Linda Lee doing poi whilst Matiu Te Huki plays.
