Hui news

On Sunday 11 October, we held our annual general meeting. We would like to welcome Juliette Stevenson and Jacqui Brunton to the Holdings Company, and would also like to acknowledge Samantha Sykes in her re-election to the executive committee.

Marae visits

It was a pleasure to welcome both Waituna and Makikihi Schools for a fun-filled day at the marae.

We are looking forward to hosting more school groups this year including Waimate High and Craighead.

We also recently provided the venue for the Thomas whānau reunion which was a great success.

Students from both schools working together.

Marae development

New carpet was laid in the dining room which extends the full length of the room. It looks wonderful and makes the area look clean and feel warm and spacious.

Rūnanga reminders

We welcome contributions from whānau for Te Pānui Rūnaka. If you wish to contribute, please send your news and/or stories to the office. We are also requesting that all rūnanga members provide the office with their current contact details.
