by working together the tasks are simplified.

He mihi nui ki a koutou katoa.

Internal  CYPS  Audit

We have recently been audited by Child Youth and Family  Audit authority and have met out contractual statistical requirement for the fiscal year.1 July 2010 through to 30th June 2011

The two funded contracts are-




While our targeted number for the year is 2080 we actually  recorded over and above that figure by 2,500.  Being a voluntary organisation ,it is likely that we will not receive our funding this for the next financial year and therefore have decided to put Te Hauauru Mahi A Iwi into recess, however we will continue to support those whanau who require our help with our limited resources as  the need arises.

At this time I mihi to the current volunteers we have, and to those who over the years have demonstrated  manaaki, and awhi to our whanau in this community.  Nga mihi nui  ki te Atua,mo ana  manaakitanga i nga wa katoa.

Pu O te Wheke

Attended the local police meeting today. Currently for the 2 month period between May and July there has been an increase  in  burglaries with 13 to 14 year olds been the culprits .  Recently  Kerikeri teenagers are coming into Kaikohe and  are throwing bottles at moving vehicles, the Police are doing everything within their power to apprehend  those who attempt this sort of behaviour. We  have asked  Police  Sergeant  Arthur McLean to attend  the takiwa meeting to be held in September  with the vision  of addressing the Takiwa  with his aspirations for Kaikohe. He also is  seeking the local schools to allow  the Police to wander around the school premises during lunch time  and interval times just to build a healthy profile with the schools .

Mauri ora Training

Mauri ora  celebrates its success in having 20 participants completing a Maori framework of  Whanau Violence Prevention training for social workers ,with the final training being held atOtiria marae from the 21st – 24th July . Te Hauauru Mahi A Iwi have one of its volunteers on  the programme, along with four from NISS. Their graduation will take place sometime in November this year with Te Korowai Aroha o Aotearoa who have relocated to Otaki.

Regent Training Centre

Both myself and Matua Pae  are members of this Roopu Taumata ,along with Matua Wallace Wihongi.  We continue to support this roopu  because it encourages and supports employment for our young people in Tourism, Carpentry, Mechanics, Literacy  and Numeracy, as well as care giving.  Our last meeting was  held in the month of June 2011

Other  Voluntary Work Completed

Budgeting -  This is an area that is becoming very critical for some whanau – Though we are not funded to do this, the need is there to re educate  those requiring the service in basic budgeting referred to us by WINZ

Food Bank

We have had numerous whanau use this service, reluctantly   we have ceased to operate this service because of the lack of finance to support it.   We do however acknowledge “TheWareHouse”, for their contribution to this cause.

Kati e tenei wa, ma te  Atua ki a koutou katoa

Naku noa
