Tini Akoranga

Delivering on the promises of providing residential experiences and Māori educational achievement will take a coordinated approach to developing a 24-hour programme of activities.

Representatives of the college, whānau through groups such as the PTA, members of Ngāi Te Whatuiāpiti, Old Boys, and the Anglican community will come together with our own kaimahi to deliver a variety of experiences to our students that will help them to develop the necessary skills and talents they will need as they move forward in their lives as Māori. 

The Tini Ākoranga will create opportunities for students in the areas of:

  • Sports and physical fitness: with a range of sporting activities including Māori martial arts, weight   training, gym work, swimming, fitness runs • Lifestyle:  financial literacy and budgeting, home economics, career development
  • Māoritanga: te reo, kapa haka, life on the marae, whakapapa, spirituality, iwi and hapū studies
  • Self Sustainability: hunter, gatherer, food preparation including eeling, hangi preparation, rongoa
  • Creativity: bone and wood carving, weaving, music
  • Philosophy & Politics: Rangatiratanga, Whakapakari Tinana

New programmes being developed will support the formal curriculum offered by the College
