Te Tahawai Marae offers educational programmes for students ranging from pre-school level to tertiary groups. The programmes are delivered by tutors, who have a great deal of experience in working with the various levels of students who visit us and who are expert in their knowledge of tikanga maori (maori traditions and beliefs) pertaining to this marae.
Programmes are 2 hours long and include the powhiri process and a series of activities exploring the stories behind the carvings, panels and designs of the wharenui. The delivery of this information is through interactive and dynamic activities including, song, art & craft and basic Te Reo Maori.
Perhaps the most important idea that is conveyed through these programmes is the 'aroha' that is extended to our visitors who wish to learn more about tikanga maori, our beliefs, our customs and important ideas. The marae becomes a place of learning where cultural sharing and understanding is paramount.
