Every two years students from Titahi Bay North School’s Te Whānau o Te Kakano spend a week at Parewahawaha Marae, Bulls, with support from Te Puni Kōkiri Te Whānganui-ā-Tara. In Manawatu they visited Hato Paora College in Feilding, Turakina Māori Girls College in Marton and the New Zealand Rugby Museum in Palmerston North. Since then students Sonny Ngatai, Amiria Sinclair, Justice Te Hau, and Roimata White passed NCEA Level 1 Māori. All four students are continuing their Māori studies and intend to sit NCEA Level 2 Māori in their first year at college.
