Te Kawenga

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.
