Tuia ki runga
Tuia ki raro
Tuia ki waho
Tuia ki roto
Tuia i te here tangata.
Ka rongo te ao
Ka rongo te pō
Ka tihei wā mauri ora
Based in Whangārei-te-rerenga-parāoa, the Aroora kaupapa sits within Community Leisure Management’s whakatauki ‘Ka āwhina mai, ka āwhina atu, ngā mahi a te rēhia.
The Aroora framework was, created after a visit from a Ruru, affirmed by a visit from a Kāhu, and realised initially at the Whangārei Aquatic Centre in 2015 (ask our kaimahi about this if you're ever on wānanga with us).
Aligned with CLM’s vision to be leaders in the leisure and recreation industry, the Aroora kaupapa gives space for Māori to define, express, shape, and pursue our own concepts of leisure and recreation in a distinctly Māori fashion, normalising our world views of atuatanga, manaakitanga, and rangatiratanga.
All of our mahi is informed by the Aroora framework. We endeavour to support and create experiences and spaces where tangata can connect to atua, to taiao, and to each other strengthening ones understanding and appreciation of collective and individual oranga.
