Tēnā koutou ko ngā mareikura, ko ngā whatukura mai i te Wehenga o ngā Rangi ki te Ao mārama nei,
Aroaro mai ki te kaupapa nui, hei paeroa mō ngā kanohi ora e heke tonu mai ana.
Kia mau pai ngā ringa ki te aka matua i herea o runga, o raro,
He whakapapa, he rauru, he oranga heke iho i te Wāhi Ngaro.
Mauri ora ki a tātou katoa, ka huri.
We greet you feminine and masculine guardians
Clearing the celestial pathways for those yet to arrive,
May the life-force be with us all.
Children/Tamariki come from many backgrounds. They are the face of their ancestors and will lead us all into the future. Children/Tamariki hold the hopes and dreams of their whānau, community and Aotearoa. They are at the centre of all that we do.
