Te Rapu I Te Maramatanga O Te Matauranga
Seeking Light & Knowledge
The Quest for Knowledge is a never-ending round, where wisdom and understanding emanates as a beacon of light from which the peaceful humble wairua dwells. A source that draws the like-minded to draw upon their kete of knowledge and stand tall before those who have gone before, those who are with us, and those who have yet to journey here. ©Te Piringa Ltd 2010

E nga mana, e nga reo, e nga karangatanga maha, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena tatou katoa.
E nga tini mate, tini aitua kei tena, kei tena o tatou marae, haere, okioki atu ki roto i te uma a to tatou Atua. E kore koutou e warewaretia.
Hoki mai ki te ao marama, e kii ana te korero, he aha te mea nui o tenei ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. No reira nau mai, haere mai ki tenei o tatou kaupapa e whakanui ana i nga tikanga a koro ma, a kui ma. Nga taonga tukuiho, Nga waihotanga mai a ratou ma hei arahi nei i a tatou i enei rangi whakamutunga, e tata ana ki te wa ka hoki mai ano to tatou Atua.
No reira tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa
