Te Puke High School

Successful recipient of the CORE Māori Education Grant -  Innovation and Indigenous Research:

Pūrākau as Pedagogy. Promoting our local pūrākau and pakiwaitara throughout all marau ā-kura here at TPHS whereby students become aware of the richness of not only the Māori culture but also the relevance of our narratives and knowledge systems to the world, the people, the environment with the connection from the creation to the future. Providing a local curriculum which will be created alongside and supported by our iwi and hapū for our English Medium school. Giving relevance and context for Māori students of their world view and their knowledge system which has predominantly been from a Western and foreign discourse. Providing a place where Māoritanga is valid to provide a more successful pathway for our tauira, whereby they can succeed as Māori.

Te Kura o Te Kao

Successful recipient of the CORE Māori Education Grant - Tūhuratia, whakaarohia, auahatia!

Modern day Māori music is key to inspiring tamariki of this generation. The purpose of this application is to support our tauira by creating an innovative space for them to produce Māori music. Our dream is to develop a music studio where our tamariki can grow the skills and abilities using the latest technology equipment. I believe our current musicians are stars in the making and deserve an opportunity for them to go further in the music industry.
