This will take Metlink's electric buses to 108 out of 450 buses in the fleet, that is 22% of the fleet. That is high by international standards, outside of China. This will lead to 61 diesel buses being taken off the roads and a 17% drop in carbon emissions and noxious fumes. Congratulations to NZ bus and Tranzurban.

So, we have been excited to learn about Ngake and Whātaitai, taniwha from Wellington Harbour.

Over past few months with support and help from the wider community we have been creating a display in our center about Ngake and Whātaitai.

Nga mihi ki a whanau Ditchburn! Trent Ditchburn created the taniwha; Ngake and Whātaitai. Trent’s younger brothers Raiden and Nova also did some amazing mahi. Their parents Phil and Ahlun helped to assemble the display on the foyer wall. The Greta Point tamariki have painted backgrounds and shells and birds!
This has all been coordinated and pulled together by our wonderful kaiako Dana! and is on display in our foyer (come in and check it out!).

What a great way to finish the week. Have a safe and happy weekend Whànau.
