This service opportunity gave us time to spend teaching young children how to make things to celebrate Matariki and to learn about Maori culture. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience as I was able to help children make crafts (and also make some myself), meet new people and help with the tidy up when the craft afternoon finished. At the end, a delicious afternoon tea was served for everyone.
