Kei te rāwhiti o Tāmaki Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Puau te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, he kura reo Māori tēnei mō ngā tamariki kua rima tau, neke atu ki te tekau mā toru tau te pakeke. Kei roto i tēnei ataata, ka kōrero ngā kaiako i ētahi tauira o te tākaro Māori ka whakamahia rā e rātou hei whakahihiko i te hinengaro, hei whakakorikori i tinana, hei whakaako hoki i ngā akoranga o te koiora, ki roto i te akomanga, ki waho hoki. Ka kite tātou i te whai wheako a ngā tamariki ki ngā painga ā-tinana, ā-wairua, ā-whānau hoki o te tākaro mēnā ko te reo Māori me ōna tikanga te aronga matua o ia rā.
Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Puau te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa is a Māori language medium school based in East Auckland for tamariki aged 0-13 years. In this video, kaiako (teachers) share examples of various tākaro Māori they use as tools to ignite imagination, engage in kori tinana (physical activity) and teach life lessons both inside and outside the classroom. We gain insight into how these tamariki experience the physical, spiritual and social benefits of play with te reo and tikanga as a core focus every day.
