It’s never too soon to care

The Northland Age - - Local News -

Three-year-old Kyrie Manu­fui did much more than make up the num­bers when he and some of his fel­low Mis­sion Place Kinder­garten chil­dren made the short walk to Te Ahu in Kaitaia to sup­port Fri­day’s Global Strike 4 Cli­mate.

The pre­cise mean­ing of his plac­ard, calling for greater care to be taken of ‘the pools,’ wasn’t im­me­di­ately ap­par­ent, but he was very forth­com­ing about the way some peo­ple were rub­bish­ing their (and his) en­vi­ron­ment.

He was par­tic­u­larly in­censed by the sight of rub­bish in the river as they crossed the Church Rd bridge, while he and his friends picked up more rub­bish on their way back to the kinder­garten than their teach­ers could com­fort­ably carry.
