Tena koutou nga kaihautu, nga kaitakatu o o tatou marae mai i Potikirua ki te Toka a Taiau. Tena hoki tatou i o tatou mate huhua. Na reira e nga mate takoto marie koutou ki tua o te arai. Tatou te hunga e takatu nei i runga i te mata o te whenua kia ora tatou.

The Ruatoria Community with the support of Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou are hosting the 2019 Ngati Porou Inter Marae Sports Festival on:

Thursday 3rd January 2019 at Ngata Memorial College, Ruatoria.

The kaupapa of the Ngati Porou Inter Marae Sports festival is to;

  • Strengthen our whanaungatanga as Ngati Porou.
  • Create a fun, relaxed and safe environment for whanau (mokopuna, tamariki, matua and tipuna) to play together.
  • Promote healthy life style practices.
  • Fundraise for our Marae whilst capitalising on friendly inter-marae rivalry.
  • Run off some of the Christmas/New Year excesses.
  • Increase Ngati Porou whanau and hapu participation in sports and recreation activities.

The emphasis is on "participation" not "competition" and we will be providing some incentives to boost the inter-generational interest and participation.

Inside the Marae Pack (click here to download  Ngati Porou Pa Wars Marae Pack 2019 & Pa Wars Marae Pack 2019 - Team Lists) is a registration form that you will need to completed and returned to our Ruatoria office by 12 noon on Thursday 20th December 2018.
