Day 1 at Te Pā Wānanga
Founding tauira have had their first day at Te Pā Wānanga, a new Māori medium satellite unit at Omaka Marae. And so far, so great!
“We have waited so long to be able to have the opportunity for our babies to be educated in an environment where tikanga and Te Ao Māori is at the heart of the curriculum,” said Kiley Nepia. “And finally, that day is here. This is hugely significant for us, our tamariki, for education in the Wairau and for our future.”
The unit is the first of its type in Marlborough and has been established under the wing of Renwick School. Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tōtanga will feature significantly within the curriculum.
