FAQ’s (frequently asked questions
Question: Why is the Trust changing the process?
Answer: Covid-19 has had a major impact around the world on many industries. Post is one, and we cannot guarantee fair and equitable process for our beneficiaries because changing alert levels in NZ and Australia have an impact on delivery times for items posted. Furthermore, one of our usual return processes is to have a ballot box available at our AGM for votes, however we cannot guarantee this option as a change in alert level will have an impact on this.
Question: If my vote is invalid will I be notified?
Answer: E Kao, No. As it is with the ballot voting, invalid votes are noted and recorded but not informed. It is important that you follow all instructions.
Question: Does this mean the trust deed is invalid?
Answer: E Kao, No. We are adopting laws created to mitigate the effects of Covid-19 in NZ. We will however, undertake a process to review our Deed post the AGM. This will be discussed at our AGM on March 28, 2021.
Question: Will the AGM be called off if there are changes to alert levels?
Answer: E Kao, No. Should alert levels change whereby we cannot meet a kanohi, we will move to a Zoom AGM. We must continue with this process.

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all frontline international border and MIQ workers that are currently undergoing regular COVID-19 testing as part of their job. This is because they are the most exposed to COVID-19, due to their mahi and the environment they work in.
If you live with someone who works at our international border or in an MIQ facility, you will be given the opportunity to receive the vaccine soon – even if you are not their whānau (such as a flatmate, housemate or boarder).
Below you will find some helpful information in the form of FAQ sheets about the COVID-19 vaccine.

On Tuesday 03 November, the Minister of Local Government Nanaia Mahuta confirmed that changing the law that enables people to block Māori wards from being established is one of her top priorities.
Although we are unsure of the level of priority this kaupapa has for the rest of Cabinet, the process for actually changing the law is likely to take at least a year, and opposition forces will still try and stop Māori wards from being established in New Plymouth and here in Tauranga in the meantime.
Fortunately, there is a plan.
ActionStation, with the support of their community partners, have committed to:
What can you do?
We are close to changing this outdated and discriminatory law and with a big push right now we can take this kaupapa over the try line, together.

Ngā Mātarae Scholarship
The Trustees of Ngā Mātarae Charitable Trust are pleased to offer the Ngā Mātarae Scholarship Programme. The Trust is a partnership between the Port of Tauranga and Tauranga Iwi with the primary purpose to promote the wellbeing of Te Awanui Tauranga Harbour. Applicants intending to undertake study in a discipline that will benefit the wellbeing of the harbour and who are descendants of Tauranga Moana iwi (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi and Ngāti Pūkenga) are invited to apply.
Turirangi Te Kani Memorial Scholarship
In recognition of the relationship with the Port of Tauranga and the respect Turirangi Te Kani held within the Tauranga community, a scholarship is offered within the area of the Tauranga Moana Trust Board, the Port of Tauranga is pleased to offer the Te Kani Memorial Scholarship Programme. Applicants will have tribal affiliation with Tauranga Iwi and will have been resident (but allowing for schooling or University study outside the area) within the Tauranga Moana Trust Board area for the last five years.
An Applicant for either of the above scholarships must be able to provide evidence of tribal affiliation with only Tauranga Iwi (either Ngāi Te Rangi, or Ngāti Ranganui, or Ngāti Pūkenga) and application eligibility requirements are outlined in the Application. An eligible application must include the completed Whakapapa Form showing the applicant’s primary line to show primary affiliations. The scholarship is $1,500 per year with recipients eligible for continued entitlement up to 3 years. This continued support is conditional on the recipient’s performance during the year and confirmation of plans to continue with the qualifying education in subsequent years. In the interests of fairness, any current recipient of one scholarship will be ineligible for the other scholarship.
Applications open in November 2020, close at midday on Monday 1 February 2021. Application and whakapapa forms are available from the Port of Tauranga’s website.
