I tkink it means white. white rabbit

Yes, as the person above has mentioned 'ma' is the colour white. However, in this context the 'ma' is being used to make tamariki ma - children, while nga tamariki - the children. I am not sure if this will make sense so I have included an example below:

Haere mai ki te whaariki 'tamariki ma' - come to the mat 'children'

I am looking forward to meeting all the staff, families and 'nga tamariki' - the children
