A couple of weeks ago Papakura Marae welcomed students from Aspire2 Trades who will begin a painting project this month.

The Aspire2 Trades team feel privileged to be given the opportunity to paint the buildings at Papakura Marae under the watchful eye of tutor Tamati Wikaira.

During the powhiri the students and staff of Aspire2 Trades acknowledged and understood the importance respecting the iwi and tikanga of Papakura Marae.

The students then received a brief from Tamati and Hine Joyce Tahere Papakura Marae Chief Operation Officer on how the mahi was to be conducted and then got on with their day and an awesome project!

Thanks again to Tony Kake and the Papakura Marae for this opportunity to put our learning in to action.
