Helen Hughes has gotten to know the people at Orauta closely, and gave sculpture and pottery lessons to the kids. She will find out more and let me know.

Good on ya Ken and co.! You stood tall, defying the government who wanted to interfere with your children's education, while other schools and parents cowered and capitulated to the government bullies.

Ken and I may not agree on the treaty, but by god, he and I share a healthy dislike for overbearing government authority. May he keep fighting for freedom, and never give up!
