Te Iria Whiu is one of two prominent Maori women who have received Queen’s Birthday Honours for 2014 for their commitment and service to Maori in the Bay of Plenty area.

Mrs Whiu has been recognised with a Member of the New Zealand Merit for her services to education and Maori.

A former school teacher, with more than 40 years’ experience in the industry, she was elected as the first Maori president of the New Zealand Educational Institute in 1995.

“Education is important for everybody. Without education you’re no-one. Education gives you the pathways to open doorways,” she said.

After retirement she continued to mentor teachers and principals in Kura Kaupapa Maori and developed Maori educational services.

She has also worked in specialist advisory roles in the iwi and tribal education sectors.

She was involved heavily with Te Matahauariki o Tauranga Moana from 1999 to 2011 and deputy chair of the Runanga nui o Tauranga Moana from 2005 to 2007, which was responsible for the return of Mauao in 2007. She is a trustee of the Mauao trust.

Of all the roles Mrs Whiu had undertaken throughout her life she said the most rewarding thing was seeing children achieve and reach their potential.

“When you are teaching a child to read, they blossom and when they realise they can read their first sentence those are the highlights for me,” she said.

Mrs Whiu wanted to acknowledge all the people who put her forward for an honour.
