NAU MAI, WELCOME

TE KURA MĀORI O PORIRUA

Nō te 24 o Haratua i tū te Whakataetae Manu Kōrero ā-Rohe ki Ōtaki. Kātahi te whakataetae, ko tērā! Tuatahi mai ko ngā tene, rere ana ngā kōrero rangatira, ngā kupu whakamiha a te hunga tuakana. Nō muri mai ko ngā kōrero ōkawa nō tēnā kura, nō tēnā kura huri noa i Pōneke, tae atu ki Porirua, tau ana ki Ōtaki.  E te ihi, te wehi, te mana tēnei ka mihi!

I riro te toa i tā tātou kōtiro a Te Paea Te Tana i te whakataetae Tā Turi Carroll (Ingarihi Teina). E kō, kāore i kō atu, kāore i kō mai i a koe, mō te kōrero i ngā reo e rua ko koe ā-runga! Tūhoe, moumou kai, moumou taonga, moumou tāngata ki te pō e, tū whakahīhī ana i te kura i āu mahi rangatira.

The recent Manu Kōrero competition in Ōtaki was an awesome event for all that participated and watched.  Our girl Te Paea Te Tana took out the Tā Turi Carroll (Junior English competition) and will be competing in the Nationals later on in the year.  She competed in both English and Māori, and we of course think she was unlucky not to win both.  We were well represented by our students and thank their family and friends for supporting them before and on the day, thats what it's all about whānau, WHĀNAU! Thanks again to Ngatuere Matakātea and Ngārangi Babbington who stood with mana for the school and their respective whānau, ka mau te wehi e tai mā!


Te Haerenga ki Te Whare Wānanga o Ōtākau ki te Hohipera o Te Whanganui-a-Tara

Nō te wiki kua pahure ake ka haere tētahi kāhui rangatahi ki Te Kura Whakangungu Tangata Hauora o te Wānanga o Ōtākau i te Hohipera o Te Whanganui-a-Tara. He tirotiro, he whāwhā, he whakawai i ngā momo āhuatanga o te Mahi Hauora.  Ko te tikanga ia he whakaatu ki tēnei kāhui ngā tūmomo āhuatanga o te Hauora mei kore ake ka hiahia whai rātou i tētahi o ngā āhuatanga o te Hauora. He nui ngā momo āhuatanga i whakaaturia i taua rā, heoi, kāore ngā taiohi i tae atu ki te katoa.  Ko ētahi o ngā āhuatanga i whakamātauria e rātou ko:

  • te Waka Rererangi Tūroro (Air Ambulance)
  • te  Rehunga (Anaesthesia)
  • te Whakaahua Whakaroto (X-ray)
  • te Kōmiri (Physiotherapy).

I tua atu i tūtaki rātou ki tētahi Tauira Tākuta Māori e whai tonu ana i tana tohu tākutatanga, 21 ōna tau e whā tau ia e whai ana i tana tohu, ka mau te wehi! He kōhi tēnei i whakahaerehia e Te Wānanga tonu mā te ōhinga Māori, kia kite ngā rangatahi mena he mahi tēnei ka hiahia whai rātou.

The other week some of our college students were invited to a day facilitated by Otago University at Wellington Hospital.  The day course was designed to give the students insight into the Health Sector and an opportunity to try different aspects of Health.  A few of the courses the students were able to get to on the day were:

  • the Air Ambulance
  • the Anesthesia suite
  • the X-ray unit
  • and Physiotherapy
Although they did not get to things like the surgeons course because of time restraints they did meet a Māori student training to be a doctor.  We hope this may encourage some of our students to at least look at the Health sector as an option for them once they leave school.  There are many options, not just being a doctor or a nurse and all the facilitators were quick to encourage the students to look at the different options in Health. Anyone interested in the Health will need to look at all the sciences in Wharekura. Me rere te mihi ki Te Wānanga o Ōtākau, nōu te whakaaro, nāu te pōwhiri, he ara tenei e eke panuku, e eke tangaroa ai ā tātou tamariki, tēnei te iti o TKMP te mihi atu. 

Strike Percussion Ensemble

The kura was visited by the Strike Percussion Ensemble on the 8th June 2017.  Touring nationally and internationally throughout the year, Strike has earned the tag as one of New Zealand’s hardest working musical groups.  The group ran two sessions at the same time for all the students of the kura. The ākonga were all given a drum or two and followed the instructions of the tutors to produce a beat.  The group played a concert at the end of the day which was enjoyed by all the ākonga.  Strike tēnā koutou i whakaaro nui mai ki tō mātou kura, hoki mai anō ā tōna wā.

Me mihi ki a Ngārehu me Mura ō tātou tīma Poumua i tae atu ki te whakataetae Poitarawhiti i tū ki te Awaikairangi i ngā rā whakatā kua pahure ake nei. He rawe ngā kēmu, he rawe hoki te kite i te taumata o ngā kaitākaro o te Awakairangi.
