Te Kura Māori o Porirua - "He Kura te Tangata"
Te Kura Māori o Porirua is a total immersion kura established in 2001 under Section 156 of the Education Act 1989. In 2004, the wharekura opened a Tau 9 class, one level was then added each subsequent year.
The Kura was set up, with the blessing of and in partnership with Ngāti Toarangatira and our Whānau Whānui to meet the educational and cultural needs of our tamariki graduating from Kōhanga Reo throughout the district.
The following principles guide our Kura. They are our vision of what we will strive to achieve.
Whai wāhitanga - Access and Participation
Rangatiratanga - Leadership
Whanaungatanga - Relationships
Kaitiakitanga - Guardianship
Ka tiaki tātou i te katoa o te tamaiti
