COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT - The Hauraki Youth Games 2014
This is the second annual Hauraki Youth Games hosted by Ngā Iwi FM. Primary Schools throughout Hauraki are invited to enter teams with a focus on Year 5 to Year 8 pupils in 2 events - Mixed Netball and Mixed Rippa Rugby. The concept came out of a desire to actively encourage and support our Tamāriki, Rangatahi and Whānau throughout Hauraki. “As an Iwi Māori Radio Station our first priority is the promotion of Te Reo Māori me ona Tikanga and we recognised an opportunity to engage with our tamariki and whānau all of whom actively affiliate with Rugby or Netball, and provide the platform to expose and showcase Te Reo Māori”
