Club Meeting 13 March 2019

  • This week Kaikohe Rotarians were pleased to hear from Marea Timoko who is tumuaki (principal) of Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Kaikohe. Marea told us that she had a career as teach including art at Northland Polytech. She first joined the kura as an art teacher, never dreaming she would get the top job. At the time the school had 80 students and was run by a commissioner. After nine years as principal the roll has grown to 273 students from new entrants all the way to year 13.

  • Marea explained that this growth has created challenges, especially in terms of buildings and playing fields. While the kura has moved several times in recent years, it is now located on Hongi St.

  • Marea also explained that while the kura is full immersion, it takes learners regardless of their proficiency (or lack of it) in Te Reo. The kura is a community and parents are very involved in the education of their tamariki. . The students are keen to be involved in the community and are strong supporters of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.

  • Rotarians were grateful to hear from one of our most well-known local educators and look forward to helping the kura in its mission of turning our tamariki into good citizens.
