Events and activities

Te Tari Mātauranga Māori regularly host activities for students and staff such as waiata and kapa haka practices and other major annual events including Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, Matariki, and the Māori graduation celebration - Tuku Taonga.

Typical activities during the annual events have included cultural workshops on cultural practices such as maramataka and the making and use of taonga puoro, arts and crafts, kapa haka, hikoi, word games and quizzes and of course kai.

Whakanuia Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

Ngā Kete Wānanga Marae invites staff and students to join us online to celebrate Te Reo Māori.

We’ll begin on Monday, 13 September with a karakia and will continue over the week with activities including the Language Moment on Tuesday, a kaikaranga workshop, a korikori tinana workout, a word of the day game, and lots more te reo.
