Maaori Success Evening on the 26th of October was an opportunity for whaanau to gather and celebrate the success of our rangatahi throughout the year. Tauira were recognised for representing the values of our kura, as well as their contributions to sports, art, kapa haka, and academics.
Our Manukura Maia Clark and Maia Ruba did a fantastic job of hosting the evening, which included a kooreo from Dr. Jack Hill and Dr. Andrew Warmington, who spoke about the importance of kotahitanga and making connections.
Congratulations to Maia Clark, who was honoured with the Whaanonga Overall Senior Maaori Student.
