Mai i te tauihu ko Moehau
Tae noa ki te taurapa ko Te Aroha
Ngā puke ki Hauraki ka tārehua
Tihei mauri ora!
Te Kawenga is a total immersion te reo Māori unit that teaches students from new entrants to year 8. The Māori language is the medium of instruction for all learning areas.
Ko te reo māori te kākahu o te whakaaro, te huarahi i te ao tūroa
The Māori language cloaks Māori thought and provides a pathway to the wider world.
(by Sir James Hēnare, 1984)
Using the Māori Curriculum: Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, we strive to develop successful learners who will grow into competent and confident learners, and effective communicators in the Māori world, healthy of mind, body and soul and secure in their identity.
