Te Pītau Whakarei

We are transforming education for our students, using the curriculum document Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.  

The centre-post of this curriculum is founded on the aspiration to develop successful learners, who will grow as competent and confident learners, effective communicators in the Māori world, healthy of mind, body and soul, and secure in their identity, and sense of belonging.

We foster Mātauranga Māori and students are connected because the learning is relevant.  Our programmes are developed with the values, aspirations and needs of our students and whānau. We work within the framework of a L2 immersion programme - for 51 - 80% of our programme,  ākonga  are immersed in Te Reo Māori with our Kaiako, Kaiarahi i te Reo Māori.
