Kia Ora Whanau,  Are you interested in Mᾱori Culture? Do you have a passion for passing on Mᾱori heritage and supporting your local school in developing Mᾱori leaders? Are you interested in involving the community in Mᾱori activities? Then we need your support. Kaiapoi North is establishing a Whanau Advisory Group to support the Mᾱori Culture development, growth and opportunites for our students and community. The role of this group is to support the school in creating opportunities for our Mᾱori community to gather each term and celebrate their culture. This opportunity is for anybody in our community with an interest in supporting the school, you do not have to be a parent of a student at our school. If you or someone you know is interested please contact Steph Hunter via the school office.
