Maringihia mai ra nga waitukukiri o Whangaehu

No te tihi o Ruapehu koe i whanau mai, No Matua Te Mana e 

Koriporipo ana ou ngaru, te tau atu ai ki nga whenua

ki a Ruatangata, ki a Rakautaua e. 

Kaangia tonu ra nga ahi o Rangiwhakaturia, o Taitapu e 

Rangitahuahua, Tu kaha mai koe, 

Nau te toki i tapahia, nau ano hoki te toki i parahia 

No reira

Uhi, Wero, Tu mai te Toki

Haumi e, Hui e,TAIKI e

Tihei Mauri Ora!

Hapū Events 2016


Kia Ora Whanau,


Quick update on the home front.  Monday 19th July 2016

Over the past few months we have been running courses at the marae to look at ways of helping our whanau gain skills and tohu that could help them in the future when seeking mahi. Some of the courses we have had at home so far are, Firearms License, First Aid Certificate, Forklift License both OSH and F Endorsement, and Wheels, Tracks and Rollers Which is coming up this Sunday 24th July and I am pleased to say that we have had 100% pass rates on all courses so far. Will keep you all posted on other courses that will be running in the near future.

Matariki this year was held at Tiniwaitara Marae for all Iwi members which tied in with the completion of phase 2 of Maripi Tuatini Scholarship programme. We can all be proud of our Rangatahi who have had the privilege of participating in this Iwi initiative, ngaa mihi Mark, Mike and all the facilitators.

Earlier this year several of our marae whanau had the privilege of visiting two of our Nga Rauru Marae, Kaipo and Tauranga Ika. The purpose of our hikoi was to have a look at their new Kitchens and the design layout, well what can i say ........ absolutely beautiful and very well planned. Out of this has come a reciprocal visit to our marae from our Kaipo whanau which will be on Saturday 13th of August @ 11.00 am, so if your calendar is free come out for a bit of whakawhanaugatanga.

On the 10th and 11th of September we will be having a major spring clean working bee of the marae facilities. If you can make one of the days that would be awesome or both would be even better. Starting at 9.00am both days.  

Most of you may have already seen via facebook the progress with the renovations of our Kohanga Reo and we are nearly ready for sign off this week. This year is a significant year for our kohanga, it has been 30 years since it opened so we would like to take this opportunity to celebrate our 30th and our new look kohanga at the same time. The date is set for the 8th of October at this stage, I will get our organising group to start on a programme and get it out as soon as possible.

Every year we celebrate Ahi Kaa at home (our marae) on the 5th of November probably better known to us all as Guyfawkes and this year will be no different. This is a time for us as a Hapu to come together and have a kai, play games with our tamariki/mokopuna and have our own fireworks display. As the time gets closer i will put out a panui with the programme as we are looking at staying overnite this year so diary all these dates so our mokopuna don’t miss out.

Finally there will be a Hapu hui on the 28th of August 2016, 10.00 am @ the Marae.

Nga Mihi
