Saturday program and more programs…..…

Our Saturday Tamariki Kohanga program has been welcoming new whanau to our kaupapa as well as some new directions for 2013 and 2014.


Our term 3 projects are a focus on kapahaka and finishing all of our art projects. For the rest of the term we will be putting our koru panels together in preparation for the renovation of our whare. We will also be finalising “Te Kore” multimedia presentation. Our tamariki will be learning their waiata reo, haka, poi and waiata a ringa. So lots of fun and mahi ahead of us!


Our kohanga is also focusing on developing some exciting new activities for community and re-starting others. One of our whanau has offered to volunteer kaiako our kohanga playgroup which we are all looking forward to! And we are hoping to start a new rangatahi program for 11 to 16 yo. At the same time we are looking at commencing programs for men to come together and a women’s group!


All of our activities will be linked into our new and developing community garden space and promoting healthy and active lifestyles, Maori style! We hope to have more collaboration with flipside circus as well as boot camps learning about each other! So lots to look forward to over the next few months.


In the meantime check out our new slideshow of pics and video of our last two Saturday activities.

One thought on “Saturday program and more programs…..…

  1. Hi I have a 11yr old grandson who was born in Australia. I would love to have him come along to learn about his Maori culture. My whanau hail originally from Hauati, East Coast. My Nanny was Hinetera Farrell.
    Thanking You and I look forward to your reply.
