The Hui Ā Tau 2017 will be held at Korongata Marae, 9 Maraekakaho Road, Hastings, on Thursday the 30th of November 9am-6pm, and Friday the 1st of December 2017 between 9am-3.30pm. We will also be making use of Te Tai Whenua O Heretaunga Takarangi Conference room on Friday the 1st of December for presentation purposes.
The name of our Hui Ā Tau is “Te Takoha Whakatipuranga” representing a gift of giving and growth. The theme or whakatauaki that we feel is fitting for this hui is “Ko te manu kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Ko te manu kai i te mātauranga, nōna te ao”, representing the fruits or hua of coming together for our hui and sharing knowledge.
