A ha Te Arawa e!
A ha Te Arawa e!
Ko te whakaariki...
Ko te whakaariki!
Tukua mai ki a piri, tukua mai ki a tata
Kia eke mai i runga ki te paepae poto a Houmaitawhiti!

Ko Te Arawa te waka
Ko Tapuika me Waitaha ngā iwi
Ko Rangiuru me Otawa ngā maunga
Ko Kaituna te awa
Ko Ngāti Marukukere te hapū
Ko Tia te whare tūpuna

Ko Hohaia tōku ingoa whānau
Kei Pukehinahina e noho ana inaianei
Ko Whaea Shirralee tōku hoa wahine
Tokowhā ā māua tamariki. Ko Brayden rātou, ko Kauri, ko Mackenzie, ko Malachi te pekepoho.
Ko Owen Hohaia ahau
No reira tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou katoa.

Tēnā koutou e te iwi

Whānau is everything to me. I am a family man, husband with four fabulous kids. Whaea Shirralee is my kohatu in everything. I come to Tūtarawānanga from Greenpark School, where I had taught for 11 years. My interests are sport, coaching kids, the arts and culture. My passion is spending quality time with my whānau. I am grateful to be paddling with the team on board the Tūtarawānanga waka and heading towards becoming the best kura in Tauranga Moana.
