Whakarongo ake ki te tangi o te kuaka, he apakura mō tō tātou hoa, a Maria.
Pūrena ana te puna o roimata i te wawenga o tō tātau āpiti, o Maria Tibble, e te ringa kahaki o aituā. E ohorere tonu ana te rahinga o Tātai Aho Rau i tana ngarotanga atu.
Okioki mai rā ki te tihi o Ngongotahā, ki ngā ringa kaha o ōu tūpuna, kia karapotia e te aroha.
Kua ngū te ngākau o Tātai Aho Rau, e oki e Maria.
Our much loved and treasured staff member, Maria Tibble, passed away at her home in Te Kaha, on 29 December 2018.
Maria was a lady of integrity, passion and honesty and we will always remember her for her courage to disrupt, challenge, and help others to search for solutions in truths. She touched many hearts and many minds both within CORE and externally in kura, schools, hapū and iwi.
Maria is at rest at Kauae Cemetery in Ngongotahā.
We grieve with her whānau.
