I could say I am posting this because tomorrow is going to be a bittersweet day for me [more on that, unsurprisingly, tomorrow] but the reality is I’m posting it because it’s beautiful and moving and incredibly powerful.
First a bit of background.
A teacher in a school in New Zealand recently died.
To honour him, around 1700 kids from Palmerston North Boys High School performed the traditional dance – the haka – as his hearse rolled into the school on the way to his funeral.
It is one of the most powerful and meaningful ways I’ve ever seen someone be told, “goodbye, we will miss you”.
Their teacher would be proud.
