Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara is committed to growing the capability of our hapū members.
The Rūnanga has developed an education plan. The purpose of the Education Plan is to capture the mātauranga of our koeke and disseminate this to our whānau. We acknowledge that we are kaitiaki of the history, culture and knowledge of our hapū.
Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara Education Grants
This trust was established in memory of Raharuhi Pururu for his work in aiding the re-establishment of this iwi on its traditional lands at Horohoro from 1929 until his death in 1957. Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara is keen to invest in the future of the hapū by providing education grants to hapū members. The purpose of this fund is to assist students to achieve academic excellence at any University, Whare Wananga or Polytechnic in Aotearoa New Zealand. The guiding principle underlying the awarding of grants shall be that applicants must demonstrate a high level of academic performance and also a commitment to the development of Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara.

Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara has established a charitable trust to support its aims of investing in the future of the hapū. Now, Ngāti Kea Ngāti Tuara wish to increase the fund so we are better able to provide education grants to hapū members. Individuals, whānau and land trusts or other organisations are invited to make contributions to the fund. These will be recorded and reported at each AGM of the Rūnanga.
Te Reo Māori Plan
