Kia ora and welcome to Te Kōpū Mānia o Kirikiriroa, Wintec Marae.
The marae complex takes its name from an area famous for its rich, fertile lands and gardens that linked the network of Waikato sub-tribes (hapū) who lived along the banks of the Waikato River.
The design of our marae is a contemporary version of traditional aspects with an emphasis on matauranga Māori (learning) and tikanga (customs and traditions). Our marae is multipurpose, where students and staff can conduct and experience teaching, learning and pastoral support in a uniquely Māori environment.
The Marae has limited availability due to high demands and all enquiries are welcome. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire.
Our marae features an array of carvings, designed and created by Tainui master carver Warren McGrath, Ngāti Raukawa, a former Wintec student.
There are a number of functions the marae can accommodate
- Wānanga (teaching and learning/overnight stays)
- Pōwhiri (welcome visitors)
- Seminars, conferences, workshops
- Lectures or demonstrations
