Te Whare Taikura o Te Maatu

Cultural Centre - Motueka High School

This space has become the cultural center at Motueka High School. It is where Māori and Pasifika will have their academic and cultural needs met. It’s also a place where all Motueka High School students including Māori, Pakeha, Pasifika, and international students can celebrate diversity and learn about the rich history of the land upon which Te Whare Taikura o Te Maatu stands.

The Whare aligns with the local sacred mountain ‘Pukeone’ which is framed in the large picture window opposite the main entrance. Colours, patterns and materials make reference to the local area.
