Stay tuned for our 2022 events.
Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2020
We all know 2020 was a turbulent year, to say the least, so we were grateful to be able to hold any events at all for Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. We had another Quiz Night, and used the new spaces in Grounded to host a movie night. As usual, there was also plenty of kai, our AGM, and we went out for tenpin bowling with some tauira.
Adrenaline Forest 2020
In Semester 1, we took 10 tauira to Adrenaline Forest in Bottle Lake Forest for a fun afternoon of high ropes courses. We had a great time and can’t wait to organise another trip to Adrenaline Forest in 2021.
Kaiārahi Hui — Rotorua 2020
Kaiārahi hui happen four times a year and are another opportunity for Māori Students’ Associations to get together for hui, workshops and socialising. In late November 2020 we were hosted in Rotorua where we had workshops on maramataka, dancing, governance and local Māori history. Our Exec members had a great time and are excited to continue the whakawhanaungatanga at hui in 2021.
Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2019
In 2019 we went BIG for Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori! Quiz night saw us giveaway hundreds of dollars in prizes and we loved having students come stay the night in Te Whare Whakakotahi for dinner and a movie. We also held our AGM and (probably everyone’s favourite) doled up mountains of fried bread.
Huinga Tauira 2019
Huinga Tauira is the AGM for Te Mana Ākonga where members of Māori Students’ Associations get together from around the motu to share ideas, learn from one another and have FUN. While only Exec members tend to go to the Kaiārahi hui, for Huinga Tauira we often take other students with us, to show how Māori student governance can work and meet other tauira. In 2019, Huinga Tauira was held in Ōtepoti/Dunedin, where Te Roopū Māori put on an incredible schedule of sports, games, workshops and social events for tauira. Nga mihi nui to them for all the mahi that went into an incredible trip.
