Te Roopu Manāki recently performed at the REAP National Conference. This was a highlight for this group who have been participating in ACE (Adult and Community Education) programmes with Wairarapa REAP for approximately a year now. They have learned a whole range of activities, and even made their own costumes with our sewing machines. Our tutor, Tama Biddle just loves working with this group from Idea Services. “They keep working really hard to get their pronunciation right, and to learn the words and actions,” noted Tama, when interviewed by the Wairarapa News.

They are great examples of people determined to keep learning.
