Today we had a memorial at work for a former staff member who’d had a great impact on the direction of the culture of the school. (I hadn’t met her.) She sounds like an amazingly generous woman who was very patient, gave a lot of herself, yet wasn’t afraid to ask the big questions like “Why am I still here?”, “Why are we still trying this if it isn’t working?” She also planned who could come into the school after her for the next phase of work.

Moe mai, moe mai, moe mai ra e wahine toa.
