NEXT iwi WĀNANGA 16TH – 18TH OCTOBER ROTOITI
Participating in our iwi wānanga is a great way to learn about our Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō cultural identity, our history, our customs and our unique connection to the whenua.
The iwi wānanga is also an excellent way to make connections with your whanaunga.
The wānanga will be delivered in both Māori and English and is suitable for all age groups and learning levels.
Spaces are limited and limited travel assistance is available. Please register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before 8th October or Freephone 0800 578900.
WHĀNAU DAY LOST PROPERTY
We have a number of lost property items from the whānau weekend and AGM of 29 & 30 August. A number of pairs of shoes for all ages and a sweat shirt were left behind. If any other the items belong to you, please contact us at email@example.com or Freephone 0800 578900.
WE NEED YOU
We need your help to make sure we have the correct contact details for you and your whānau. It’s important that our iwi database is kept up-to-date so we can keep you connected and informed about the exciting things that are happening in your iwi. If you have moved or changed your email address or phone numbers, please let us know of the changes so we can update your membership file.
Either email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on Freephone 0800 578900.
NAME OUR NEW QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER
Now that our monthly Pānui is being delivered regularly, we have turned our attention to creating a printed Quarterly Newsletter. The first one is due out in November. The aim of the monthly Pānui is to keep you up to date with the latest news & information, and with what’s happening or coming up each month. The Quarterly Newsletter will fully report on what’s happened and provide you with more information, in more detail.
We’re looking for a name for the Quarterly Newsletter, so please put your thinking caps on and send us your recommendations to email@example.com.
