NAU MAI, HAERE MAI KI TE KURA KAUPAPA MĀORI O NGĀRINGAOMATARIKI

Nau mai e te wāhanga tuatoru. Kawe tonutia mātou ki anamata.

Te Kura Kaupapa o Ngāringaomatariki was established as a whānau community initiative by parents and caregivers of primary aged tamariki who desired a Māori medium education option in the Kaipara region.

The kura opened for instruction in March 2007 with 10 tamariki from kohanga reo and 26 tamariki who exited local English medium schools. The kura is presently located on the site of the former Ō-Ruawharo Primary School which is maintained by the Hemana whānau for educational purposes.

Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ngāringaomatariki is located in a rural area of Ōruawharo on the outskirts of Wellsford. The kura is located next to a marae, whare karakia and urupā on the shores of Kaipara Harbour. A kaumātua and kuia named the kura after one of seven significant ancestral pā in the area. The kura site focuses on developing an educational appreciation for the hapū and iwi roles and responsibilities.

The whānau provide an education for students Years 1 to 8. “Ko te whānau te mana whakahaere o te kura” is the vision of the kura. This is reflected in the total commitment of parents to ensure their children participate in an education programme that promotes and teaches te reo Māori and tikanga Māori.

Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ngaringaomatariki is located in a rural area inland from Wellsford. Students display are confident learners and leaders who enjoy positive relationships. They interact and speak te reo Māori in the learning programme. Learning activities enable students to participate in rich language experiences at the kura and in the community.
