Te Wahanga Whakaako o Te Kohekohe

Mehemea ka moemoeaa taatou, ka taea e taatou.
If I am to dream, I dream alone. If we all dream together, then we shall achieve.
Te Kirihaehae Te Puea Herangi (1883–1952), Maaori leader

Our core business in Te Wahanga Whakaako o te Kohekohe is te reo me ona tiikanga Maaori (Maaori language and custom) – Protecting our taonga, and nurturing our rangatahi. Te reo Maaori is a taonga recognised under the Treaty of Waitangi (and an official language). All who learn te reo Maaori help to secure its future as a living, dynamic, and rich language. By learning te reo and becoming increasingly familiar with tikanga, Maaori students strengthen their identities, while both Maaori and non-Maaori alike develop shared cultural understandings and a greater understanding of practicable bi-culturalism. We seek to support graduates of our programmes who honour the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi: protection, partnership, and participation.
