Honolulu Waldorf School (HWS) and its athletes have had much to celebrate this year. In addition to celebrating its 50th anniversary, the school launched its first-ever ILH canoe paddling team, thanks to the efforts and experience of long-time paddler and canoe coach Tambry Young. For its first year, HWS leased practice canoes from North Shore Canoe Club, which were housed in space offered by Hui Nalo Canoe Club in Maunalua Bay Park. Maryknoll School generously loaned racing canoes to the team for the ILH canoe paddling season.
Now this K-12 school in East Honolulu has acquired two practice canoes of its own. A canoe blessing and dedication will take place on Friday, May 11, at 5:00 p.m. at the High School campus in Aina Haina.
