Children’s joy at PMG09

If you look at all the goings on at the Pacific Mini Games 2009, you can’t get past the children having a fabulous time.  

Kuki the mascot was a huge hit with the children, they were always looking for cuddles and just hanging on to any part of the mascot they could hold on to.

During the opening march past the children were oblivious to the grandeur of the occasion as they ran onto the track while athletes from different countries were giving out flags and blow up hands.  

The children of the Cook Islands were as much a part of the games as the athletes.   What a fine legacy we will be passing on to the future of the Cook Islands, and what are the messages that our children are giving us?  

Have a look at the photos and judge for yourself.
