New Zealand 8 May: Napier
Napier schools and nature
We are very grateful to Ben, Bruce (pictured with his grandson Sam) and Clasien Fraser of Napier Garden Motel for the complimentary stay. It was most appreciated.

We are very honoured to have Councillor Maxine Boag from the Napier City Council join us at Nelson Park School and she gives a very insipiring talk to everyone present.

We are pleasantly surprised when some of teachers come to the stage and sing a peace song for us. Led by Ms Frances Peacock, they give a very uplifting performance.
Jim and Ailsa entertain the audience with a funny skit to illustrate what is peace and what isn't peace.
Student leaders come out to welcome us at the entrance of the school and lead us into the school hall.
