RELEVANT EXPERIENCE FOR BEING A TRUSTEE

Give full and important reports from meetings to the whanau of Matahiwi Marae. Involved in fund raising i.e. tourism, EIT, for sustainability of the Marae. Attending any or all meetings to help whanau by informing them of what’s happening in the community, for the welfare of the marae, up coming events and opportunities.

Committed to Marae structure for its wellbeing. Marae and whanau support the vision to moving forward for the future. Whanau, Marae, future and wellbeing are my concerns for the hapu.
YOUR VISION FOR WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE AS A TRUSTEE

Develop and make it sustainable for the future
Develop better understanding between the young tamariki and their maraes, protocols, practices and whakapapa, the aroha as a whanau

MARAE/ HAPU INVOLVEMENT
Matahiwi Marae committee 20 years +
Making the marae always available to whanau also making the marae independent
Promote business on the marae
Marae trustee to inform and help the marae committee so that we as whanau are happy.
I believe the future is for the young to be prepared and able to develop into caring available to our young Maori. There are many avenues available to our whanau to compete in education, politics, trades, leadership rolls, science and many more. Marae commitment to whanau, and working with other marae’s as we are all connected. For me a happy marae overflowing with aroha for all.
