Staff Call Back Day - Our Faith Stories ~ Ko o maatau korero whakapono. Our story started with Mamae Pitiroi, a woman of fatih, whose image is immortalised in the statue of the Māori Madonna and Child outside St Patrick's church, Taupo. Staff made a hikoi to the church of St Werenfried's, in Waihi Village, Tokaanu, and listened to Tony Hepi regal them with the history of the church and how Tuwharetoa became catholic and embraced the faith. Staff enjoyed a picnic by the waterfall before travelling to the Immaculate Conception church in Tokaanu where Tony offered prayers for the teachers before returning home.
