Reo Wānanga – Wāhanga Tuarua #2

Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōnā te ngahere.
Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōnā te Ao!
Tūturu whakamaua kia tina! Tina!
Hara mai te toki. Haumi e, hui e, tāiki e!

Mauri ora kia tātou!

Welcome to wāhanga tuarua #2 for the Reo Wānanga in partnership with Matāwai and Waikāretu Marae.

Please fill out the Registration Form as numbers are limited, however, there is another wānanga to come later on at Otūrei Marae.

For some of our first timers, please don’t be whakamā.  This is a safe, friendly and supportive environment of learning regardless of which level of reo you have.  In Wāhanga Tuatahi #1, Waikāretu welcomed home many first timers to the reo and few on the level up from that.  Even our kaumatua learned a thing or two!

Its a good thing to note that Ripia Marae has always, and forever been known as a ‘Learning Marae’.  We love to embrace, teach and learn – so this being said, its true! Don’t be whakamā (shy/put off)

For our returnee’s, we have an amazing addition for you all on your return.

The Wānanga will be held at Ripia Marae – 1627 Pouto Road, Te Kopuru, KAIPARA 0391 from Friday 30th April 6pm to Sunday 2nd May 2021.

Powhiri will be at 6pm – so please be sharp.

Please fill out our form as much as you can so we can ensure we have catering arrangements in place.

Now, we are getting into winter and Ripia Marae is beautifully exposed to Tokatoka Maunga, but also the four-winds – especially now with winter on our doorstep.  So please bring warm clothes, pj’s, bedding and slippers to wear in and around the whare – yeah its not a problem!  Also, warm clothes for our babies too!

Ripia Marae look forward to hosting the next wānanga and thank Te Matāwai and Waikāretu for the mauri of this #Amazing kaupapa.
