Ngā Oha

Grants to support ngā uri ō Tuperiri from ECE to Tertiary

Kei ngā uri ō Tuperiri, koutou e eke nei ki ngā taumata tiketike i te ao mātauranga, i te ao hauora, i te ao Māori tēnā rā koutou katoa.

Ko te tūāpapa ō Ngā Oha ko te mahi ngātahi me ō tātou uri maha, kia eke ai rātou ki ngā taumata tiketike i te ao e whai nei rātou. Ko te wawata nui, ā tōna wā, ka hoki mai ō tātou uri ki te whāngai i te mātauranga, ā haere nei te wā. 

The foundations of ‘Ngā Oha’ is to work alongside our uri across the world, supporting them to reach excellence in whatever path they choose to follow.

Our hope is that, when the time comes, our uri will return to their communities to share their skills with our whānau.

We’ve partnered with Māori Education Trust 

We’re excited to share that we have partnered with the Māori Education trust to support our tauira in Secondary and Tertiary study. Established in 1961, the Māori Education Trust encourages Māori to pursue further education. They have done this through scholarships and grants to Māori across Aotearoa.

Advancing the educational aspirations of Māori are a shared vision for both Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and the Māori Education Trust. This year, the Māori Education Trust are supporting Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei tauira in secondary and Tertiary studies by contributing to their Oha Mātauranga.

We would like to thank the Māori Education Trust for this contribution.

 Hoea tō waka kia māro te haere. Wāhia ngā moana waiwai o te ao.
