Te Reo Matatini


PLD will help kaiako identify ākonga who will participate in the programme, with assessments to identify the areas that need addressing (i.e., hot spots). Student progress is carefully monitored with regular reports provided to kaiako and whānau.

Te Reo Matatini involves accelerating learning in te reo Matatini with ākonga who are underachieving. This PLD is offered to Māori Medium kura in classrooms with programmes involving a specialist kaiwhakaruruhau (facilitator) working with ākonga, their kaiako and whānau.
