Tēnā tātou, nau mai ki tēnei tau hou. I tēnei wā, kua mutu ngā hararei, me te wā ki te noho ki te taha o tō mātou whānau. Heoi anō, kei te hoki mai tātou ngā tauira o te motu, ki te Whare Wānanga o te Ūpoko o te Ika a Māui.
Kia ora everyone! To all our tauira starting their first year, welcome. To all those returning, welcome back. This is the new executive for Ngāi Tauira, your Māori Students’ Association, signing in for a new year of events, study sessions, and fresh hot banter. Ngāi Tauira sat down to plan out Orientation and the rest of 2017. Here’s a few things to look forward to:
Pōhiri and Kai:
On February 28, the place to be is the Pōhiri at Te Herenga Waka Marae. Bring your whānau, and meet your new whānau. There will be kai, and a chance to meet other students from around Aotearoa. Assemble at the waharoa across the road from Vic Books on Kelburn Campus at 10am.
Held throughout the year. If you study well with others, these are opportunities to motivate yourself to finish off your assignments with others who are in the same waka.
Throughout the year we will be hosting whānau events to meet and bond with other Māori students at university. In the past we have had paintball, bowling, bubble soccer, and He Mātārere (Ngāi Tauira Ball). Keep an eye out!
If you think you have the athletic prowess of your great tīpuna, get in touch with Shaq Milner, Nohorua Parata, or anyone else on the executive. We have teams entered in competitions at the Recreation Centre weekly.

Ngā mihi whānau.
