Off to kura
Aw, look at these tamariki mā. Rā Whānau to our latest 5-year-olds.
Te Oranga Nelson, daughter of Karl Nelson and Mihi Wineera, and mokopuna of Terry and Brenda Nelson (nee Hemi) and mokopuna tuarua of Eruera (Inky) and Te Oranga (Girlie) Hemi, started kura at Aranui Primary School in Castlecliff, Whanganui in July. Pretty neat to see her wearing her Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō backpack.
Also, a big Happy Birthday to Quiana Pember, daughter of Kristen Matthews and granddaughter of Elizabeth Matthews (nee Warrington). Sending best wishes to Upper Hutt.
And in Lower Hutt, we have Hinekura Kingi, daughter of Tawheti Kingi – hope school is going well for you Hinekura.
Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō is proud to offer all registered members turning 5 a little helping hand when they start school with an Education Starter Pack. Make sure your tamariki or moko is registered so they don’t miss out.
