At Aotahi, we have regular events to bring our students together to eat, celebrate and laugh.

Our annual events include:

  • Nau Mai BBQ - we always start the academic year with a BBQ in the second week of term, which is an opportunity for new and old students to whakawhanaungatanga over a sausage and salad. Over the year, we have start and end of Semester BBQs. These events are an opportunity to relax and connect with other students and our staff.
  • Aotahi Easter Egg Hunt - on Easter Saturday, we have an easter egg hunt like no other. Designed to support our students with a family, connect Aotahi with the wider Māori community and strategically make it seem normal to our tamariki that they should come to university, our annual easter egg hunt has hundreds of eggs hidden around the Te Ao Mārama complex, give aways and a shared lunch after the fun.
  • Ngā Tikitiki o Aotahi Annual Awards Event - every year on the night that exam results are released, Aotahi has an awards event that celebrates the top students in each of our classes and also confers two supreme awards for the top scholars in Māori and Indigenous Studies and Te Reo Māori.

We have a number of other events throughout the year - keep an eye on your emails, our website newsfeed, and the posters on Te Ao Mārama’s walls to get to great times.
