Māori Matters

“Ka mate kāinga tahi ka ora kāinga rua”

Mehemea kua hunuku koe mai i te Raki, mai i te Tai Tonga, mai i te Tai Rāwhiti,  mai i te Tai Hauāuru ki te Ūpoko o te Ika a Maui kaua e ware ake, he kainga tenei whare wananga mōu. Mehemea kua wehe atu koe mai I tōu papa kāinga,  ki te whai i te ara aka mātua ki te  whare wanaga nei he kainga rua mōu. Ahakoa  he rangatahi, he matua rānei he wahi mā ngā tauira Māori hei noho mahana i roto i te manaakitanga,  i te aroha, i te whakawhanaungatanga, i te rangimārie.

Ka tū ake a Te Kawa a Maui ki 50 Kelburn Parade, ā, koinei te wahi ka poipoi ngā mātanga o te whare wananga nei hei eke panuku ki ō moemoeā.

Ka tū ake a Te Herenga Waka ki 46 Kelburn Parade, ā , koinei te wahi ka poipoi ngā poutokomanawa i ō mahi katoa i te whare wananga.

Ka tū ake a Ngāi Taura ki 42 Kelburn Parade,a, kōinei te wahi ka poipoia ngā tauira Māori e rātou anō.

Kāti, ka tū ake a Te Pūtahi Atawhai ki Student Union building, ā, koinei te wahi ka poipoi ngā kaihauutu i ngā mahi akoranga whanui o te whare wananga nei.

“When one door closes, another door opens.”
