Today the Mayor and Maori elders came to kindy to officially open the new Maori whare (house) and settlers house at kindy. They have had 2 wooden play houses specially built for the children. Mr Wayne Guppy the Upper hutt mayor offically opened the houses and then they were blessed by the elders from the upper hutt Orongomai Marae. Also present was the local MP Chris Hipkins (without his Ducati motorbike!) and Silverstream school principle Mary Ely.
