2022 Trimester 1 Orientation

Welcome! You are about to embark on your unique learner journey with us. It is an exciting time for both yourself and Whitireia & WelTec. Our aim is to support you every step of the way - starting with a Pōwhiri or Mihi Whakatau and Orientation.

You are invited to attend a Pōwhiri officially welcoming all new ākonga (student) to the Porirua and CBD campuses (held at Whitireia and Te Kāhui Auaha); and a Mihi Whakatau in Petone (held at WelTec). This celebrates both the beginning of your relationship with us and the start of your learner journey.
