Kopukairoa 2024 Spaces Available
Kia hiwa rā, kia hiwa rā!
We are taking enrolments for the 2024 reorua (bilingual) classes
Tēnā koutou e te whānau whānui o Arataki. E tuku ana i ngā tai o mihi ki a koutou.
We have started organising our classes for 2024 and there are a limited number of spaces in our bilingual classes.
Our bilingual classes are set up for whānau and tāmariki who would like to be in a class learning from a Māori perspective, based on Māori values, and learning te reo Māori. Along with our school values, our reorua classes are strongly based on whanaungatanga/ relationships and tuakiri/identity. Between 30-50% of the programme is delivered in te reo Māori, with te reo Māori being taught through conversation, modelling, and explicit teaching. It is important to understand that students continue to learn reading, writing and mathematics in English. Being in a reorua class is designed to enhance students’ learning and success at school.
At present, whānau requirements are supporting the learning of te reo Māori, attending termly whānau hui and for students to participate fully in kapa haka. These commitments are really critical for the success of the child and for all the tāmariki.
We presently have a limited number of places covering the year levels. To indicate you would like your child to move to Kopukairoa or to express interest or obtain more information please do one of the following:
For all options please include your child’s full name and present year and classroom.
There are only a limited number of places so sadly we are not able to guarantee a placement. If there are more students than places, the remaining tamariki will be placed on the waiting list for the next available openings.
