The last Friday of the month is a special occasion for kaumātua at Tuahiwi Marae. The day aptly named Health Day at the Pā provides kaumātua with the opportunity to get their blood pressure checked, talk to nurses and to hear from local health and government professions. It also allows for catch-ups, fun activities and the chance to share some kai.

Health Day at the Pā has been running for nearly 10 years and is open to all kaumātua to attend. Just come down to Tuahiwi Marae on the last Friday of the month with a plate of food to share and join in on the fun.

It’s a day out that is enjoyed by all kaumātua who attend.
