Meet Hinerangi Busby who shares her journey with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi.
I am a graduate of the marae-centred programme, Te Pouhono, transforming Māori communities, promoting mātauranga-a-hapū, a-iwi. My participation took me to the Bachelor of Mātauranga Māori, and then postgraduate study.
Awanuiārangi centres you. This is the nurturing space of Māori researchers, with the support of academic and professional staff; this all transpires from an authentic indigenous and traditional Māori environment.
My studies have empowered me to play a more pro-active role in whānau and hapū affairs. Instead of being angry at a past that we cannot change, let’s become part of the solution for positive change.
A busy year to look back on and an exciting 2022 ahead. On behalf of the Team at Acacia Cove, the very best of wishes to everyone for a wonderful & safe days and months ahead.
Here are some of the best ideas of summer living.
Explore the local countryside:
The site of our retirement village isn't random – they’re inspired! Our village is surrounded by beautiful local countryside, so you can explore the area and enjoy the summer sun in gorgeous surroundings. You could take a morning walk, an evening stroll, or even a bike ride if you want to pick up the pace.
Good times with friends:
At our retirement village, we pride ourselves on creating a sense of community and bringing you to the heart of it. We have a whole host of activities on offer in the village center – which is perfect with music events and much more. What’s better than spending the summer months doing fun activities, eating good food, and lapping up the lovely weather with friends new and old.
Our retirement village has a variety of excellent on-site facilities to enjoy all summer long, including spa and restaurants. We also have a wide range of exciting activities to get involved in
Lock up and leave!:
With restrictions on their way to being lifted, holidays and trips away are – at long last – back on the cards. You can head out on your summer adventures knowing that your home is safe and secure in our village.
So here’s to 2022 and wishing you all a happy New Year!
Kia ora Neighbours, A contested decision by politicians on the Upper Harbour Local Board to mow down 8,000 native plants and young trees, could bring a hefty bill. Council staff reject that there was a mistake in the planting, and now there could be a big bill. What do you think ?
