MIHI

PIKI MAI!  KAKE MAI
NAU MAI!  HAERE MAI
KI TE NUI O TE AHI NĀ…
I PUTA MAI I NGĀ NGĀREHU
O WHAKAPAUKARAKIA
KI TE WHAIAO KI TE AO MĀRAMA
TIHEI MAURI ORA!

Rise up and ascend to the challenge
We greet and welcome you
You the multitudes of Ngāi Te Ahi
Like our ancestors, arise and triumph
Over challenging circumstances
To emerge victorious with a bright future
Tis indeed a new dawning, tis indeed life itself!


WHAKATAUKI

“Mai ngā ngārehu o Whakapaukarakia, kei te kā tonu Te Ahi”

From the embers of Whakapaukarakia the fire burns on


PEPEHA

Ko Mauao te Maunga
Ko Awanui te Moana

Ko Takitimu te Waka

Ko Tamatea Arikinui te Tangata
Ko Ngāti Ranginui te Iwi
Ko Ngāi Te Ahi te Hapū

Ko Hairini te Marae
Ko Tamahika te Tangata
