Parakai School

We are very excited to be participating in Whale Tales 2022. To local Māori (Ngāti Whātua) the Helensville District, including Parakai, was originally known as Te Awaroa – ‘The Valley of the long River’, the Parakai area was named Kaipātiki – ‘food & flounder’. These names connect us to te awa and te moana and remind us that we rely on our waterways being healthy for our survival. We are happy to have the opportunity to highlight the need to protect and conserve this taonga for future generations.
