Ohu Whakahaere

Ohu Whakahaere comprises the conveners of each of the other Ohu alongside the Chairperson of the Kura - Te Whatanui Winiata.  Ohu Whakahaere acts as a quasi “Board of Trustees”.  Although the mana whakahaere remains with the entire whānau - for practicality and legislative compliance, this Ohu is a smaller group that drives business alongside the Tumuaki.  Whānau have delegated a number of responsibilities to the Ohu Whakahaere to progress.
