Civic Duty

24 Mar

Something I thought should be shared.  Only for the tangata whenua but it is one of the few ways Maori can benefit, may as well make use of it.  In Invers on Wednesday and Bluff Thursday.

I’m David Tikao from the Whai Rawa team at Ngāi Tahu. Myself and Jolene Marunui are off to Murihiku this week to meet with whānau and discuss school and tertiary education grants/scholarship opportunities (such as Ka Pūtea grantsOut of School Tuition grants and Yamada O’Regan scholarships), and the many benefits of joining Whai Rawa.  Thanks to the local rūnanga for hosting us. 

Ideally we want to enroll as many whānau as possible who aren’t enrolled with the Ngāi Tahu whakapapa unit, and those who haven’t joined Whai Rawa yet should consider joining too. Please come along to any of the following venues to see us about enrolling, joining and all of the above grants/scholarships:
Wednesday 26 March
Murihiku Marae – 9am – 8pm

Thursday 27 March
Aurora College 8.30am-9.30am (for whānau of those at the College)
Te Rau Aroha Marae, 10am-8pm

Friday 28 March
Oraka Aparima Rūnanga Office, 10am-2pm 4-6pm
Aparima College (from 8.30-9.30am) and at Riverton Primary School (from 2.30-3.30pm)

For enrollment and legally required identification requirements, please bring the following:

  •   birth certificates for you and whānau members interested in signing up; and
  •   for those aged 16 or older your driver’s license and proof of your home address.  Find out more about ID requirements here.
