Te tai rā, te tai rā, te tai rā e pari ana ki hea?
E pari ana ki tawhiti nui, ki tawhiti roa
E pari ana ki a rātou mā kua ngaro i te ao, kua riro ki te pō
Aue te mamae e haehae ake nei…
Ka huri ki te hunga ora, tēna tātou katoa,
As we have seen in Aotearoa and across the world, COVID-19 can be spread more easily and quickly when groups of people gather together.

During Alert Level 3, our Marae, our wharenui Tumutumuwhenua will remain closed.
We have created a detailed Level 3 guidelines resource around the management of tangihanga on Ōrākei Marae. To read, click here
We have appointed kaiwhakarite who are available to talk to, provide
guidance and assist you during this time.
