WE ARE TEAM TE ARAWARU

TEAM


TE ARAWARU

Te Arawaru is our Māori Immersion Learning Team led by Mahina Selby-Law.  Te Arawaru consists of two Reo Rua classes (Years 1-2) and four Rumaki classes (Years 3-6). All classes in Te Arawaru teach from the Māori Curriculum - Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. 

It was from the peak, Te Arawaru, that the Rangitane people on both sides of the ranges would light fires to signal their relatives on the other side when assistance was needed in times of trouble. Te Arawaru also refers to the whetū marama, the eight-pointed star and the eight pathways.

Ko Ngongotaha te maunga
Ko Awahou te awa
Ko Te Arawa te iwi
Ko Ngāti Rangiwewehi me Ngāti Whakaue oku hapū
No Rotorua ahau
Ko Mere Waru tōku ingoa
Tēnā koutou katoa,

Akomanga 13 is a very special place to come and learn in a bilingual immersion setting. We are developing our current practice of ‘Akohia me takarohia’ - Play-based learning. I enjoy researching Maori history and am very passionate about Mahi Toi and DIY projects around the home with a Māori twist. Quality whanau time is always a must in our household.
