The Kaiwhakahaere Māori plays a crucial role in leading the development of the improvement for and of Māori to achieve success as Māori at our school. This role is also critical in supporting staff to build their capability to support all of our akonga (Māori and non Māori) to recognise the importance of roles and responsibilities as Treaty partners, to challenge and support others to challenge unconscious bias that may be present in our society and to develop and grow our kaupapa. 

Our kaupapa is embedded in the principles of Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga, Tangata Whenuatanga and Ako. The role of our Kaiwhakahaere Māori is to support the senior executive and our staff to enhance our principles in practice to ensure that Te Ao Māori, tikanga Māori and te reo Māori is present in our everyday practice for improved student outcomes. 

We are committed to:

  • A reciprocal partnership with our local iwi Tainui, and our local Hapū of Ngāti Wairere within our curriculum, property, and strategic direction. 
  • Ensuring that Māori students are encouraged to achieve as Māori and the school holds an important place in the strengthening of local history, culture, and community  
  • That all Māori contexts of learning, ways of knowing and being, Tikanga Māori and te Reo Māori are present across all areas of the schools. 

This will be a teaching role and teaching will be undertaken in either RJHS, RSHS or both. The hours will be negotiated on an annual basis but as this is a new role we recognise the importance for someone to have time to set up systems and procedures. It is also important the the Kaiwhakahaere Māori is a participant in both schools  to understand the expectations that are placed on our staff and students to ensure quality learning is undertaken.
