Kōhanga Reo / Puna Reo

Kaiwhakahaere work differently with each Kōhanga / Puna Reo and Purapura depending on their needs. Some of the different ways Kaiwhakahaere attempt to support our Kōhanga Reo is through;


• Our signature programme "He Pi Ka Rere" which provides professional development and upskilling of Fundamental Development Skills with links to Atua Māori and Tikanga Māori (He Pī Ka Rere).
• Development of natural resources to support delivery of skills and physical activity.
• Linking of Kōhanga whānau to community based physical activities and sporting opportunities.
• Implementation and support to hold ongoing Purapura Ra Tamariki (Kōhanga Reo Sports Days).

He Pi Ka Rere


‘He Pī Ka Rere’ is an evidence based Kaupapa Māori movement programme that draws on Mātauranga Māori and other indigenous knowledge to inform the role of traditional activity in the growth and development of a child. A traditional Māori belief is that with in every child there is the capacity for growth and development when the appropriate stimuli are provided. A constant theme throughout 'He Pī Ka Rere' is providing stimuli that allow tamariki to learn new skills and to develop their natural talents. For more information click here

Te Wānanga Takiura Teachers Training College Support

He Oranga Poutama Ki Tāmaki Makaurau are working with Te Wānanga Takiura O Ngā Kura Kaupapa Māori O Aotearoa in the area of Hākinakina (Sport) and Ngā Mahi ā Rēhia (Traditional Games and Past-times).

This involes Kaiwhakahaere upskilling of kaiako (teachers) and first and second year tauira (students) of Te Wānanga Takiura Teachers Training College, in the area of Hākinakina and Ngā Mahi ā Rēhia. The overall aim is that once the students graduate, they will carry the various modes of tākaro/games taught to them, into kura throughout the region.

One of the particular Hākinakina taught to second year students is Kī o Rahi. Once students have become familiar with the game, they are also taught how to referee the game. Te Wānanga Takiura students are utilised as Referees for Intermiate and Secondary School regional Kī o Rahi Tournaments in Tāmaki Makaurau.
