Whakamau ki tō Mana Tangata, hei oranga mō tō whānau, tō hapū, tō iwi.
Harness your uniqueness, for the well-being of your people.
Te Korowai Matauranga:
- Te Reo me ōna Tikanga
- Te Ao Hurihuri
- Te Mana Tangata
Te Reo me ōna Tikanga:
When Te Korowai Matauranga is at its best you will hear Te Reo Māori naturally flowing from the mouths of the ākonga (learner), kaiako (teacher), kaitautoko (support staff) and whānau. Te Reo Māori is the language of choice. We are strongly guided by our whānau to plan, develop and implement Te Reo Māori, Tikanga and learning experiences that motivate our tamariki to ‘harness their uniqueness’.
‘Ko te Reo te Mauri o Te Mana Māori’
Te Ao Hurihuri:
Te Korowai Matauranga are inquisitive learners who are immersed in kaupapa Māori. They are confident on the Marae, they can kōrero about and acknowledge local wāhi tupuna. They are leaders; strong capable leaders who contribute to the wellbeing of their whānau, hapū and iwi. Te Korowai Matauranga ākonga have the best of all learning styles. They learn through Ngā Mahi-ā-rehia, Hākinakina, Te Taiao and Te Ao Pāpaho. There are lots of opportunities the tamariki are offered, across the kura, within the takapu and beyond.
They are keen to explore the greater whenua of Aotearoa, making connections with Mlmaunga, awa, waka and iwi. They aspire to traverse Te Moana-Nui-Ā-Kiwa, making connections with their tupuna and planting seeds for their future.
‘Te tamati akona ki te marae, tau ana’
Te Mana Tangata:
The adolescent years can be challenging at the best of times. Te Korowai Matauranga embraces the physical and spiritual changes. We use the mātauranga of our tupuna, along with the support of our kuia, kaumatua and whānau to navigate our way through these times to understand what this means for us. Together we build on our whanaungatanga to create life-giving relationships that are mana enhancing.
‘Kia pakari ai te tane, te wahine i tòna Ao tūroa hei rangatira mō āpōpō’
