He mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa

Our Online Assemblies

We hope you enjoyed our online assemblies this week.  We had so many of you come along! We’d like to keep an online option for our assemblies in the future so everyone can come without leaving work and people in other parts of the country can attend too. There were a few technical issues along the way, but overall we think it worked well. A certain grandmother has now learned that muting herself is an option, a fact which would have benefited me as a child growing up if she’d realised it earlier...those of you in the Tui and Kukupa assemblies may have heard me saying ‘Mum, mute yourself!’.  We will be looking at finding a way to livestream it as an alternative to googlemeet in the future. If you have any feedback about the assemblies, please let us know.
