Te Whanau Rumaki


So what is the Rumaki programme on offer at Hikurangi School?

We have made a commitment as a school to provide our students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and experiences in Te Ao Maori. We do this throughout our classroom programmes but we are also incredibly privileged that we can provide an intensive programme for tamariki and whanau to opt into.

On a Thursday we offer a full day Senior Programme for our students in Years 4 to 8 and on a Friday we offer a full day Junior Programme.

The Junior programme has a strong focus on building vocabulary through shared books, waiata and poetry with a Maori alphabet focus.

The Senior programme continues to build on vocabulary knowledge and using these words in meaningful conversations and contexts.

Tikanga Maori and Kapa Haka are a major feature of both programmes.

Please do not hesitate to contact our school if you have any questions.
