Nei te rau tāwhiri o Koukourārata

Another year is whizzing by and there are a few changes in the bay, as we start preparing for spring… busy times for all. Hoping everyone is safe and well wherever they may be.

Before moving on Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata would also like to extend our heartfelt aroha to all of our whanauka who have lost loved ones over the past month. Our thoughts go out to all of you.

Nō reira koutou o te huka wairua haere atu rā, moe mai rā i kā peka o tō tātou nei ūkaipō. Mā te Atua koutou katoa e manaaki e tiaki. Āpiti hono tātai hono rātou ki a rātou ka moe, āpiti hono tātai hono tātou te huka ora ka noho, pai mārire.
