E whakanui ana Te Wānanga o Aotearoa i tōna toru tekau tau i Te Awamutu

E whakanui ana Te Wānanga o Aotearoa i tōna toru tekau tau i Te Awamutu, ā mai i tētahi tauira o te tau tuatahi ki tētahi tauira o naianei tōnu, e kitea ana ngā uaratanga i whakatū i tēnei wānanga.

E whakanui ana i ngā toru tekau tau o te wānanga Māori i whakatū ki ngā waiora Māori.

Hei tā Jim Mather, “Tētahi wānanga taketake nūnui o te ao taketake.”

I whakapumāutia i raro i ngā ārahitanga o Rongo Wetere rāua ko Boy Mangu. I hiahia Te Wananga o Aotearoa ki te whakaara i ngā akoranga tikanga me te kimi wāhi mō ngā tauira e takaoraora ana i te kura.

E ai ki a Marie Panapa, “I tipu ake tēnei kura i runga i te whakaaro, me manāki i ngā tamariki i panatia i te kura o Te Awamutu i te tau 83.”

Ko Thomas Morgan o Te Awamutu tētahi o ngā tauria tuatahi, i hoki mai ia hei kai kōrero ki te tohatoha i ngōna whakaaro mō ngā rā tuatahi.

I roto i te toru tekau tau, kua rerekē ngā rauemi, ngā whare, me ngētehi tangata, e ai kia Pine Wipaki-Hawkins e mau tonu ana ki tētahi tino.

Hei tāna, “Ko ngā tikanga, me ngā āhuatanga Māori koia te mea e tino ngākautia e au.”
