Ko Ngāi Tahu te mana whenua o tēnei rohe
Nāia tōku mihi.
E noho ana ahau ki ngā tahataha o Ōtākaro
Nō Ōtautahi ahau
He kaiako hangarau ahau ki Te Rōhutu Whio
Ko Mat Jenkins tōku ingoa
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou katoa
My name is Mat Jenkins and I am very excited to be joining the Te Rōhutu Whio whānau next year.
I live in Christchurch with my wife Gill and two children Eddie and Isla. In my spare time I enjoy writing and playing music. I have played guitar for as long as I can remember and I used to play in a variety of bands around Christchurch. I’m hoping to get back into that more in 2022. I also enjoy playing and watching sport – particularly cricket and squash.
