Kia ora whanau, this panui is to advise that there will be a hui this Tuesday night 5th March, 5.30pm at Ngati Pikiao Runanga to begin the Planning for this years Ahurei.
The proposed Agenda is as follows:
2. Confirm a date for the Ahurei

4. Discussion on how best the Ahurei can be organized ie: whether or not a working party (as per the 2011 Ahurei) is required; the judging standards; the required resources and related putea; an Iwi communication plan; tutor input; and whatever else needs to be discussed.
Thank you whanau, and please be advised that I am posting this panui on behalf of the 2011 Ahurei working party (Paora Te Rangi, Tui Ransfield, Phyllis Tangitu, Mapihi Raharuhi, Amo Whata), so that we, or whomever, can start organizing our 2013 Ahurei – awesome!!
