Celebrating Education!

5th Dec 2023

Te Hā o Mātauranga held their end of year celebration on 4th December for their Te Kura ākonga (students). The ākonga were acknowledged for their strengths, their growth over the year and for the hard work that has led to academic success. 

The night was great fun, with the students contributing to the evenings activities. Keepa Timms cooked up a storm with Mark Paterson and fed the 40 or so attendees a delicious meal they prepared during the day. Kara Smith mc'd the night, with confidence and flair, leading the crowd in activities as well as acknowledging the Te Hā staff. Grace Jellyman and Allie McLaren led the evenings karakia and Kyson Manawatu sung with a voice like velvet, entertaining the crowd with a soulful rendition of Elvis Presley's In the Ghetto. 

A place like Te Hā o Mātauranga relies on support from community and some of those were thanked during the night such as James Bishop from New World supermarket and Paul Threadgill who has volunteered all year. An added bonus was a speech from the Mayor who also vacuumed the Upper Room expertly to help with the clean-up.
