Taika Waititi helps raise funds for West Auckland Kōhanga

Kua kaha kitea tātou i te kanohi a Taika Waititi nō te whakarewanga o tana kiriata hou a 'Hunt For The Wilderpeople'. Inaianei, kua huri te ringatohu rongonui nei hei ringaraupā mo tētahi kōhanga reo i te Uru o Tāmaki.

Kī katoa tēnei whare pikitia ki te uru o Tamaki mō te whakaaturanga o te kiriata hou a Taika Waititi arā a 'Hunt For The Wilderpeople'. Heoi ehara ko te whakaaturanga noa, he kaupapa kohi pūtea tēnei mo te Kōhanga Reo o Kakariki.

Hei tā Taika Waititi,  “It's a cool thing that they are trying to do which is to build an outdoor class room where tamariki can learn about sustainability, ecology, their environment where their food comes from.”

Ko te whainga kia kohia he rima tekau mano tārā mō te wāhanga hou.

Ko tā Judy Cooper / Te Kōhanga o Kākāriki, “Nā Taika te kaupapa i whakatupu i tēnei rā mō te mahi putea mo te kōhanga reo.”

“Tino pai tēnei kaupapa, nō te mea, for the kōhanga, the screening the fundraiser, but also to have Taika and people from the film communicate with the community, because they make films for the communities and we are this community,” hei tā Ella Henry / Ngā Aho Whakaari.

I te wā e mahi ana ia, kei wiwi, kei wawa ke aia e huri haere ana. Ko ia te ringatohu o te kiriata hou a Thor. Atu i ana haerenga i tāwāhi, ko Piha tana kainga, ki te taha o tana hoa rangatira me a raua tamariki.

Ko tā Waititi, “I always love being back, loving being around the people I think just the familial feel of New Zealanders is what I miss the most when I’m away.”

Ko te whainga matua a te kōhanga reo o Kakariki, he whakatū i tētahi akomanga rā-wāho, he papa tākaro, me tētahi mārā kai kia mohio pai ngā tamariki nō hea a rātou kai.
