Nei te reo manahau e whakatau i a koutou ki Te Rohe o Ahikāroa.

Nā te timatanga mai o te Whare Wānanga o Otago te Pūtaiao i noho hei pou matua. I tau tōna ake whakaritenga ture i te tau 1989. Mai taua wā kua pakari, kua piki hoki tōna mana kia āhukahuka ai a taiao te kounga o āna mahi, me te kaha o tōna aro ki te rangahau, kia noho taua rangahau hei tūāpapa mō ngā akoranga.

Kanorau ana ngā momo kaupapa ako hei akoranga māu kei te taumata paetahi, a, kei te taumata paerua hoki. Hei tāpiri ki tēnei ko te Tohu Paetahi, a, ko te Tohu Paetahi Hōnore me te maha hoki o ā rāua kaupapa matua. Ka aro rānei pea ki te Tohu Pūtaiao-ā-Nuku, ki tētahi atu o ngā tohu ngaio, ngā hōtaka rānei kāore e here i ngā ture tohu o te tari nei. Tēnā, tirohia tā mātou whārangi ipurangi kia kitea ai he kōrero anō.

Ko ō tātou whare, he whare hou rawa, he whare kua whakahou rānei, a, kāore i tua atu ēnei whare, ēnei taiwhanga pūtaiao mō te mātai, me te whakaako. Nō ēnei rauhanga ka tū tonu mātou ki te hāputa o te whakakoro pūtaiao.

He mana nui nōku kia tū hei ahorei ki Te Rohe o Ahikāroa, ki tēnei whare wānanga e whai kaha rawa i ngā mātāpono o te pūtaiao. Whakahīhī katoa ahau i ā mātou kaimahi me ngā haumāuiui whai mana i te whakaarihia ai e rātou. Me whakakōtua ka tika ngā kaimahi mātauranga, ngā kaimahi rangahau rātou ko ngā kaitautoko o te Tari Pūtaiao ki Ōtākou i te tokomaha kua whai mana ana ki te ao whānui i ā rātou rangahau. Ka ū atu mātou katoa ki te kounga o te whakaako me te tautoko i ngā hōtaka mātauranga.

Me mōhio mai koe, ko ō kaiako he mātanga i ō rātou kaupapa ako kia riro ai i a koe tētahi tohu whai mana, a, he kairangahau whakawhana hoki.

Nei te reo mihi e karanga nei e tāria ana kia mihia anōtia ngā haumāuiui ka whakaputaina e koe.
