Memorial for Te Rehia McGhie
by Tony Kane - Thursday, 12 November 2015, 8:40 PM


This time last year we received the news that ex Kenakena Student (Year 8, 2013) Te Rehia McGhie had died in a motor vehicle accident.

Te Rehia was a student at Kenakena from Years 4 to 8 and the sister of two other ex-KC students.  She was a member of Kenakena's Kapahaka Group and a kai karanga for their powhiri.  She was proud of her whakapapa (heritage) and was proudly documenting this in her last year.  She was learning Te Reo Maori from her mother and had a goal to be a Maori language teacher.

Te Rehia possessed a quiet ‘mana’ and dignity and her little brother Tumanako thought the world of her.  Her parents Harriet and Andrew took their daughter back to Hauiti Marae in Tolaga Bay where she now lies amongst her ancestors.

Te Rehia’s whanau wish to honour her memory by presenting a special taonga to Kenakena School at a ceremony following a powhiri (welcome ceremony) on Thursday, November 19 at 9.30am.  Parents and whanau are welcome to attend this ceremony as are friends of the school, people from the community and ex-students who knew Te Rehia.

People associated with the school should arrive by 9.15am and be with the school’s students, teachers and community for the powhiri, which will be held in the courtyard outside Rooms 8-12.  The Donovan Road Gate will be closed from 9.15.  If arriving after that, people should use the Arnold Grove entrance.
