Tukutuku wānaka

Whiria kā Aho ki Puketeraki, our weaving group is holding a tukutuku wānaka at the marae from 18-20 November, with another to follow in early February (date to be confirmed).

These wānaka have been funded by the Ngāi Tahu Fund. There will be no cost to the participants.
We have some whānau from Arowhenua and Central Otago coming who would like to learn this art form.

It would be beneficial for us to have an idea of how many are interested in being part of this wānaka, so please can you contact either Betty Apes at [email protected] or Phyllis Smith at [email protected]

First Aid rakatahi wānaka

Tūmai Ora Whānau Services and Kāti Huirapa Rūnaka are working alongside St John to host a wānaka for both our rakatahi and St John rakatahi to better equip themselves in emergencies. Please contact Waiariki Parata-Taiapa if you are interested in attending at [email protected]
