Blessing Our New Classrooms
Our School constructed new classrooms. This morning, we had a blessing ceremony.After speeches and songs in the auditorium, each class had a representative to accompany the official group, led by the Chief, Kaumatua John Komene, to bless the rooms. It was a Maori blessing, and the guest and children were asked to blow their spirits into the empty classrooms to give them warmth and peace.
I remember only last month, when Sam and I took the Royal Brunei Airline. They started their flight with a blessing as well.
