Seeking 2 new pouako/teachers (Y1–8) to join our newly established, designated character, total immersion kura. One position is for an immediate start and the other starts in term 2.
We have grown a reputation for the delivery of high-quality Māori medium education within a strong whānau environment.
We are charting a new educational direction in pursuit of collective excellence and high personal achievement. Our mission is to unlock the potential of our tamariki while honouring the deeds of our tūpuna.
Our designated character reflects a kura committed to te reo me ōna tikanga o Ngāpuhi-nui-tonu with adherence to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the rights accorded us, with particular reference to Article 3 which grants us the rights of citizenship which were affirmed by the men of the 28 (Māori) Battalion who paid the ultimate price of citizenship.
This serves as the korowai for the kura and cements our unique educational approach of providing a tikanga Māori-based programme of learning that includes and supports ākonga to achieve their aspirations within the kura and beyond.
It builds on our 3 pou:
Kia Māori – an education and environment that validates Māori knowledge and ways of learning
Kia Mātau – encouraging innovation, inquiry and the development of specialised knowledge and skills
Kia Tū Rangatira Ai – the development of strong character and personal excellence, living with mana.
'Tu ki te marae...Tu ki te ao'
