Kaitiaki of the Whenua is our programme for delivering primary industries training to Wharekura in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. We take the learning to the students. The programme is based in the students’ rohe and whenua, and we deliver the training on blocks of Māori land and local marae.
The programme aims to connect our rangitahi to students’ whenua, highlight the importance of whakapapa, and recognize the pathways and opportunities that their whenua provide.
