Marae news

Waihao Marae has had the pleasure of hosting the Lower Waitaki Zone Committee, Aoraki National Park Hui and the Waimate High School Peer Support Training. The te reo classes that ran in 2016 proved to be very popular, therefore plans are being put into place to continue the classes from mid-February.

Waihao whānau gathered together for a whānau meeting and Christmas party on 10 December. It was a lovely day with sunshine, great company and fabulous kai.
