Today and especially as the sun rises this ANZAC Day, we acknowledge the men and women who sacrificed their lives.

We acknowledge the families of men and women who fought and especially those who lost their lives, and those who today still carry the burdens of grief, and loss.

While we celebrate the victories won, we also mourn the losses. 

We remember lest we forget. 


Our Whau ACE Family

In spite of COVID-19, 2020 was still a cracker of a year. Family can make all the difference to how we cope with what the universe throws at us and the Whau ACE family is no different.

We have had windows fog up, and windows that are dirty to look through, but with a little elbow grease, as the Yandall Sisters say, "we can see clearly now ...". 

COVID-19 disrupted a lot of things and many people have been affected. Here at Whau ACE the team have remained strong, united and optimistic. By cleaning our windows we have seen the opportunities for our community and worked hard to help our community see their own opportunities.

Many lessons have been learned, and many new skills gained, not necessarily by choice - however grateful for our new-tools. We have been invited into the homes of our community through Zoom and we have shared and got to know each other and our families more intimately. We have deepened the relationships and we have experienced fully friendships, kotahitanga and manaakitanga.

We love our community and the work we do with and for them. They are our family and family should never get left behind.
