News & notices
We will be providing COVID-19 testing at Parawhenua Marae today and tomorrow as follows:
Tuesday 30 Nov 4-7pm
Wednesday 1 Dec 4-7pm
Thursday (COVID-19 zoom hui Q & A)
How does the Testing Centre work?
When you arrive to the venue, a whanau hauora team will direct you through to the parking area.
When you arrive to the venue, please stay in and/or near your car and one of the team will come and meet you to be tested.
Key hint: breathe in when they take the test, which can help to distract the tickleish feeling!☺️
Whanau Hauora Team
We are proud to have our own whanaunga Te Atatu (Tats) Mihaka providing her tautoko for whanau on site. Tats is an Emergency Nurse who ran some of the COVID-19 isolation facilities in Auckland last year, and is providing this mahi for us with the support of the Whanau Ora Community Clinic. Thank you Tats and Whanau Ora clinic!
Huge thank you to all of our whanau tautoko of Ngā Hapū o Te Ahuahu, for your expertise and guidance, to ensure the smooth running of this kaupapa for our whanau, hapū and marae.
The risk of contracting COVID-19 is still present for us all, from tamariki to kaumatua, regardless of other health problems and vaccination status.
Protection of our whānau and hapū is our focus, because sometimes it is those we do not think of immediately whom can be adversely affected.
In order to awhi, and to protect all of our whanau, we encourage COVID-19 testing for all who attended our event on Saturday, as well as whanau who live in the same household, or whom you have been in direct contact with since the event.
Keep calm, Get Tested today

|Anei whānau, sharing a notification for feedback request on our taiao within Northland from Te Rūnanga Papa Atawhai O Te Tai Tokerau.|
Kia ora – Hello!
Please, we need your help.
We all love living in Te Tai Tokerau Northland, right? And we all love having access and spending time in our Taiao, right? And we all want our backyard to be healthy and thriving, right?
Well, we need Northlanders’ to share their views on this, so we can clearly talk about our aspirations for the future and make sure strategy and planning reflects a strong community voice. Click here for more details.
Te Rūnanga Papa Atawhai O Te Tai Tokerau/Northland Conservation Board is really excited to be championing this kaupapa and is asking every day Northlanders’ to share their hopes and fears for the future of our Taiao. (We are particularly keen to hear from our young people).
What we need help with.
Please encourage your connections to share their voice (and you too of course!) It will only take 10 minutes or so. You can go straight to the survey by clicking here.
We are also going to be running a competition and asking people to send in videos of their aspirations for our future. Follow the fun on Facebook by clicking here.
As a leader here in Te Tai Tokerau Northland, we know this is as important to you as it is to us.
Ngā mihi for your awhi for this kaupapa – we really appreciate it!
