Message from the Chair

Tēnā Tatou Katoa,

“Kei kite kōiwi, kei rongo kōrero”. When you physically come to wānanga – you expand on your family, personal growth, knowledge and understanding.



We will be holding a Strategic Planning Hui on Sunday 7th May, the aim of this hui is to form a strategy to achieve our aspirations post settlement. We are looking for your input and ideas on how we define and prioritise goals and best manage our resources to achieve them. Make sure you put this one in your diaries whanau!

We have created a survey  to gain your valuable feedback. There are 8 multi-choice questions, please do this whanau as it only takes 2-3 minutes!

The survey can be found here.



Our next wānanga is coming up on Saturday 13th– Sunday 14th May. This is not one to miss as we are combining this with our AGM. We are calling for registrations for this wānanga in order to prepare for catering and accommodation. The wānanga will be held at Te Upoko o Te Whenua Marae. Accommodation is available at the Marae for the weekend.

To register, please get in touch with Tamzyn. Details below.
