Te Kawerongo ki Ngā Pōtiki. Our quarterly newsletter.

ISSUE #18

September2020 / Mahuru2020

A word from your poari 

Kia ora mai tātou,

This year will likely be remembered for one thing: Covid-19.

The disruptions, major setbacks and heartbreaking losses caused by the coronavirus pandemic will certainly stick with us all for a long time. It has been a tough year for a lot of people.

So, it is with great joy and relief that Ngā Pōtiki has some good news to share.

We are building a puna reo in Pāpāmoa!

June2020 / Pipiri2020

A word from your poari 

Ngā mihi i te wā Matariki, te tau hou!

Our last kawerongo, sent out in March, arrived in your email inboxes in the midst of Aotearoa’s Covid-19 lockdown.

Our staff were out of the Ngā Pōtiki office at the time and so were unable to print and mail out the hard-copy version of the newsletter.

It was a time of great uncertainty and change and, for many of our whānau, that might still be the case.

Sadly, over the past few months, businesses have been forced to close, jobs have been lost, and budgets have been tightened…

ISSUE #16

March 2020 / Poutū-te-rangi 2020

A word from your Kaimahi 

Kia ora mai tātou 

This is an unprecedented time. A time of change. Our marae have had to close temporarily and we have all been asked to stay home for at least four weeks.

When this year began, very few of us would have been paying attention to the Covid-19 coronavirus and what it might mean. Now, for the wellbeing of our whānau, marae, hapū, iwi, and everybody in Aotearoa, we have to pay attention and act with others in mind…

A word from the Tari 

Kia ora mai tātou 

It’s been a hectic time here at the Trust as we approach the end of the working year. 

We have had a busy period recruiting people to join the team here at Ngā Pōtiki. In the lead up to Christmas we have had two people join our team in new part-time roles. Luwina Stewart who was previously looking after our finance, invoicing and payroll tasks as a contractor, is now a permanent member of the team and has been recruited as our new Financial Administrator…

A word from the Tari 

Kia ora mai tātou 

 It has been a busy few months and we are taking lots of steps forward. Last month the Board approved the creation of new roles to join the team working here at Ngā Pōtiki. 

We have new roles in Housing, Education & Skills, Communications, Finance and Executive and Governance Administration which we are going out to recruit shortly …

June 2019 / Pipiri 2019

A word from the Tari

Ngā mihi i te wā Matariki, te tau hou!

We hope you are all managing to stay warm on these cold icy mornings.

This week the constellation of stars marking the Māori new year has risen.

It is a time for contemplation and remembering all of those who have passed away – rātou kua whetūrangitia. It is also a time for thinking about the future…

March 2019 / Poutu-te-Rangi 2019

 A word from our Chairman 

Kia ora whānau, hope all is well with you and your whānau. 

Easter is almost upon us with the promise of a well-earned long weekend break and Anzac day to commemorate our whānau and friends alike whom without them we wouldn’t have this great place Aotearoa as it is today. And don’t forget, we now have a new war memorial at Harrison’s Cut, Papamoa…

December 2018 / Hakihea 2018

 He Mamae Aroha 

In this issue we note the loss of so many kaumatua over the past year including Tirikawa Ohia, Mutu Cooper, Hoti Blake, Tatau Rameka and just recently Ebba Te Tua. Their loss takes much of the sheen off what has been a year of amazing achievements for the Nga Potiki a Tamapahore Trust in the service of our Nga Potiki people…
