Rock Movers

Mahalo to our Papa (class) for your work ethic. I learned a lot from building the dam up and making a safer crossing to our lo'i kalo. I heard someone say that what we are doing in our mauka lab is useless and not applicable for us in becoming adults.

I would like to point out that that line of thinking is not only disrespectful and shortsighted, but actually mocking what Hakipu'u Learning Center is all about. The lessons to be learned can only be observed and gained by students who are willing to learn no matter the medium. The responsibility to learn is of both the teacher and student who must both work diligently to process and communicate whatever information is important.

Even if we are putting bells on a piece of stick, this should not be taken lightly as just a menial task, but should be seen as an opportunity to learn obedience to directions, patience to focus on no matter what the task is. Those habits of obedience and patience alone help to make an individual more marketable and likely to receive jobs, promotions and other positive signs of maturity.

Please be diligent in your studies...

'Eo Kumu. Thank you very much for pointing out that important lesson. We MUST take responsibility of our learning, no matter what age we are. We all can learn new lessons daily and should cherish that opportunity and knowledge.

I do want to say, I really appreciate your diligent commitment to HLC's mission and philosophy of learning. MAHALO KUMU!!!
