About the Pohiri & Poroporoaki (farewell)

Graduation starts with a pohiri and poroporoaki (farewell) for graduands and their guests at Tangatarua Marae on Mokoia Campus, Rotorua.

Family and friends are invited to attend this non-ticketed event. Seating is limited.

Graduands must be dressed in their academic regalia for all graduation events. We encourage graduands to wear their family korowai and/or other culturally appropriate adornment over the gown and under the hood.

Photos may be taken outside the wharenui (meeting house).

As the event takes place outdoors, prepare for the weather conditions.

Be sure to allow enough time to find a car park on campus and walk to the front entrance of the marae.

Morning tea will be served following the poroporoaki.

Note: The G Block level 2 foyer (near the marae entrance) can also be used as a waiting area.
