The Ruatoria Community with the support of Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou are hosting the 2020 Ngati Porou Inter Marae Sports (Pa Wars) which will be held on Friday 3rd January 2020 at Ngata Memorial College, Ruatoria.

The kaupapa of the Ngati Porou Pa Wars 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.

Marae packs were emailed and posted out to our marae today.

If you would like to participate in the Ngati Porou Pa Wars, in the first instance, please contact your marae to see if they will be entering a team.

Copies of the Marae Packs are available from the Ruatoria office or contact Hiria Shaw hshaw@tronp.org.nz if you would like to be sent a copy.
