Out on the Whangarei Heads today, around the Marine Reserve of Reotahi, there took place an historic event. A Human Chain was formed to send a message to boaties from all around - Our Marine Reserve needs to be protected! Some of our children from Manaia Kindergarten took part in this event.

Back at Kindergarten we talked about the Human Chain; How it was created, What it meant, and what it might look like. We decided to join in spirit with our brothers, sisters, family and friends who were at Reotahi, and form our own Human Chain. We created a chain of protection and aroha around our new formed vegetable garden. We held hands and sung songs of love. We talked about the need to protect our garden, give to our garden, and enjoy our garden - and then it too may give to bountifully to us.
