All New Zealanders together, by Roger Childs…
We may have different ancestry and identify some of the time with a particular ethnic organisation: the Irish Society, the Pacific Island Church, the local Iwi, the Chinese Association, the Indian community whatever, however as citizens of the nation we are all Kiwis.
We all use shops, roads, schools, hospitals, television sets, modern technology, eating places, bike trails and walkways, and a range of local facilities across the nation, and we have our interests in family, friends, sport and culture based in New Zealand.
Senior students and staff from Kapiti College posed for this photo which will feature in a forthcoming textbook on the benefits of colonisation for all New Zealanders.
The photo expresses the unity of our people whatever their background.
