Waharoa stage 1

On Wednesday the 14th of October, the carpentry section of EIT came to Mahia to start the construction of a waharoa at the entrance of the Whangawehi walkway. Under the leadership of Will Keruru, local builder, the day went very smoothly. 14 students took an active part to this first stage which consisted of preparing profiles, digging holes, and concreting in 4 large size poles.

The work was tyring, and the barbecue prepared on site was appreciated.

A big thank you to Will Keruru for organising this project and sharing his skills and knowledge with the next generation of builders.

We would like to acknowledge Elroy Spark, Manager of Carters Wairoa, and local resident for his ongoing support.

We are looking forward to seeing the structure finished next week.

A big thank you to all the students who have participated today, you have been amazing.
