About the course
This model weaves the national curriculum into community specific goals and needs. It’s a progressive approach that fosters connections and partnerships with whānau, hapū and the community. The child is at the centre of the marau ā-kura. The key focus of the marau ā-kura is traditional practices and wisdom. Marau ā-kura is a framework for learning and teaching that is both aspirational and achievable.
