A trib­ute to Teina Terei


Parenting - - Letters -

It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Teina Terei (son of Pio Terei). John Cowan in­ter­viewed Pio in our pre­vi­ous is­sue of Par­ent­ing about Teina's long and brave bat­tle with leukemia. Un­for­tu­nately, he lost that fight in the early hours of Wed­nes­day, 17 Au­gust.

Pio has been a much-loved mem­ber of The Par­ent­ing Place whā­nau since 2001, de­liv­er­ing hun­dreds of pre­sen­ta­tions across the coun­try. Teina also worked with us, help­ing present at a cou­ple of our Na­tional Young Lead­ers Day events. He was a large per­son­al­ity with an in­cred­i­ble gift for en­ter­tain­ing, and a huge ca­pac­ity for oth­ers. He was taken too soon and will be sorely missed.

Our deep­est con­do­lences to Pio, Deb and Teina’s broth­ers, Jack and Dal­ton.

With love, The Par­ent­ing Place team
