He kura ka huna

Te Aho Matua o ngā Kura Kaupapa Māori o Aotearoa is a philosophical statement of Māori cultural and spiritual beliefs, values and practices.


Children are nurtured and honoured by recognising the spiritual inheritance and physical nature of each child’s uniqueness.

Ngā mātāpono o te kura

Children’s te reo Māori is prioritised first and foremost, then subsequent bilingual competence. However, respect for all languages is important.

Rohe pōtae o te kura

Community is encouraged at school and connections which link whānau with hapū and iwi for the holistic socialisation of the child.

Te Wānanga

Exploration of the wider world is emphasised to foster an appreciation and curiosity for Papatūānuku and Ranginui and their children.

Te Reo

Teaching and learning places children at the centre of their ever-expanding educational experiences that weave together to align body, mind and spirit.

Ngā Kura-ā-Iwi

The success of Kura Kaupapa Māori is measured against the combined successes of each of the values.
