Ko te kupu whakataukī o Tā Himi Hēnare (1911 – 1989) maintains and promotes the desires and aspirations of the parents, kura whānau, and community about the vision of te reo Māori me ōna tikanga for their tamariki, mokopuna enrolled at Te Kura Kaupapa Maori (TKKM) o Te Rāwhitiroa.
Its proverbial wisdom requires that the kura, board of trustees, teaching and support staff, whānau, hapū, iwi, community and associates all cooperate to understand and implement Te Aho Matua guiding philosophy, principles, and practices for the benefit of each ākonga so that they are supported to view the full extent of their worlds of possibility from the basis of their own cultural foot-stool as Māori.
Te Rawhitiroa is a U4 special character (Te Aho Matua) Kura Kaupapa Māori based in Whangarei Terenga Paraoa.
The Kura provides an immersion education programme for students from Y1–13.
We have a current roll of 187 students from Kura Teina through to Wharekura,
We are seeking from term 1 2022, a great tumuaki who can lead our Kura with consideration and care for our tamariki. Our new principal will work together with the school team and whānau to support our students as they each strive to reach their full potential within the classroom and beyond.
Te Rawhitiroa requires an inspiring leader with a clear and complementary strategic vision that will enable the continued development of our teaching and learning. This requires a principal who through positive relationships within the community, understands the aspirations of parents, whānau, students and staff.
