After a successful launch in 2021 the rangatahi hauora programme ‘Tēnei Tōku Whare’, supported by Te Puni Kōkiri and delivered and framed around CLM's Aroora kaupapa, has seen a significant boost.
The Aroora kaupapa continues to explore new ways (or old, depending on your reference) of engaging with Atua Māori and te taiao in the pursuit of strengthening and sustaining oranga.
Aroora Māori leadership programme Kāhu Kōrako, run under the kaupapa Aroora and supported by Te Puni Kōkiri, kicked off again in early February.
The Aroora crew took out the Whangārei Aquatic Centre management team for a day.
Aroora is a kaupapa founded on supporting health and well being, that is why the team were so excited to get the nod from parent company CLM to invest in a Defibrillator.
For the last 5 months the Aroora team has been working closely with local kura, Kamo High School, running two rangatahi programmes for their students.
The programme, in its second year, is based on the Aroora framework and is designed to support the leadership aspirations and development of CLM employees

A beautifully carved mere pounamu, named 'Te Ika-whenua-o-te-rangi' has been gifted to Aroora team by the renowned carver Timoti Moran.
