Our kaimahi Tawai Aperahama and Moriki Hogan have been running a 6 week program with kotiro from Bay of Islands College alongside Hinemoa Hunt. Into its third week the girls in the picture are wearing hoodies with the kupu “Ara Mai Ra, He Toa” sending a message to combat bullying as part of this anti-bullying kaupapa.

The kotiro from Bay of Islands College are the champions of the program and were recently at our NHHT offices in Kawakawa learning a haka and working with uku. Once they finish learning the haka they will release it onto social media. He mihi nui ki te kura o Te Peowhairangi, kia Hinemoa, Tawai me Moriki ara ki nga kotiro e kaha nei ki te ako.
