Awesome news! We have now confirmed our dates for the next Makaawhio – Te Ara Whakatipu Wānanga! Sunday 29th April – Saturday May 5th (includes two travel days; to and from Te Anau; two walking days (in and out of the valley) and 4 full days in the valley).

We have spaces for 13 Rakatahi Mahaki who meet the following criteria:TAW – Website Info 2018 _ Draft

TAW – Gear List  TAW – Application Form 2018
Age: 15-18 (some flexibility on a case by case basis) We will be seeking a mixture of gender – ideally a 50/50 split and a mix of engaged and competent… in their Māhakitanga as well as dis-connected. The selection process might mean that some rakatahi may not be selected for this particular hīkoi, but there will be other opportunities to reapply, including for the hīkoi later this year.

This is an excellent opportunity for our rakatahi to reconnect with the southernmost part of our rohe and with each other!!!

Contact the office to receive more information! It wikll also be loaded onto our website in the next few days…deadline dates for applications is 17th March 2018…
