Te Rangi Aniwaniwa

We maintain a regular review programme to evaluate and report on the education and care of young people in schools.

We are in the process of shifting from event-based external reviews to supporting each school in a process of continuous improvement.

There may be delays between reviews for some schools and kura due to Covid-19 and while we transition to our new way of reviewing.

Read more about our new processes and why we changed the way we review schools and kura.

2. Te Whakarāpopototanga Te Aho Matua

“Whāia te Tino Rangatiratanga”

“E whā ngā pou mana, hei ārahi i a tātou te whānau o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa – te mana atua, te mana whenua, te mana tangata, te mana tamariki.”

Nō te tau 1993 Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa i whakatūngia ai ki Kaitaia. Ko te pūtake o te kura, ko te whakaako i ngā ākonga Māori i te reo Māori, mā te reo Māori, ā, i raro i ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua. Ka whakanuia e te whānau ngā pou e whā e ārahi ana i tō rātou wawata, i te wawata anō hoki o ia tangata, arā, ko te tino rangatiratanga. Ka ārahi ia pou i te whānau ki te whakatutuki i tō rātou tirohanga. E hāngai ana ngā pou whā ki ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua, ā, e whakarato ana hoki i te tino angamahi mō te aromātai i ngā paetae ākonga me ngā putanga.

Ka whakaatu ngā ākonga i te waiora ā-tinana, ā-wairua hoki ki tētahi taiao e arotahi ana ki te mana atua, te mana whenua, te mana tangata, me te mana tamariki. Ko te kori tinana tētahi tino āhuatanga o te hōtaka o te kura mō ngā ākonga me te whānau. Ka rumakina ngā ākonga ki te reo me ngā tikanga Māori, puta noa i te rā. Ka whakapuakihia e te whānau, te ngākau nui ki te whakapūmau i te reo o Muriwhenua, hei hāpai i te whānuitanga o te tupu me te pūmautanga o ngā iwi e rima o te rohe. Ka āta whakamahia ngā karakia, ngā whakatauāki, me ngā kīwaha o te rohe, hei āta whakatinana i te horopaki, hei āta whakawhanake hoki i te hōhonutanga o te māramatanga ki ngā tikanga, ngā hītori, me te taiao māori.

Ka whai wāhi nui ngā kaumātua ki te hāpai i ngā akoranga a ngā ākonga i roto i te reo me ngā tikanga Māori o te rohe. Ka whakapuaki rātou i te hōhonutanga o ngā mōhiotanga e pā ana ki ngā kōrero tuku iho o ngā iwi me te taiao māori. Kua tuituia ngā mōhiotanga o ngā iwi o te wāhi ki te marautanga o te kura. Ko te kaitiakitanga o te whenua tētahi āhuatanga matua o ngā akoranga a ngā ākonga. Haere ai ngā ākonga puta noa i te tau, ki ngā marae o te takiwā, hei ako i ngā hītori, ngā whakapapa, me ngā hononga ki waenga i ngā iwi o te rohe.

Ka whakarato te whānau me ngā kaimahi i te whānuitanga o ngā whai wāhitanga mō ngā ākonga ki te whakatewhatewha, ki te tūhura hoki i te ao Māori me te ao whānui tonu. Ka āta whakanuia e ngā kaimahi ngā kaupapa ā-takiwā, ā-rohe, ā-motu hoki mō ngā kura kaupapa Māori. Ka akiaki te whānau me ngā kaimahi i ngā ākonga ki te āta tahuri atu i ā rātou akoranga, ā, ka whakanuia ngā tirohanga motuhake ka riro i a rātou.

E whakahaere paitia ana te kura e te tumuaki me te rōpū whakahaere matua, mā te tautoko hoki o te poari. Whiwhi ai te poari i ngā mōhiohio e pā ana ki ngā paetae ākonga. Ka taea te whakapai ake te kounga o aua mōhiohio. Kua tāutuhia e te kura ko te arotake marau tētahi āhuatanga hei whakawhanake ake. E tautoko ana te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i tēnei aronga.

Whakaritenga Whaimuri

E whakapono ana te Tari Arotake Mātauranga e āhei ana te poari ki te whakahaere i te kura, i runga i te whai whakaarotanga nui ki ngā ākonga me te Karauna, ā, e āhei ana hoki rātou ki te whakatinana i ngā whakapainga i tāutuhia ai ki tēnei pūrongo.

Ka arotakehia anō e te Tari Arotake Mātauranga te kura, hei wāhanga o te huringa arotake o te wā.

3. Ngā Whakamārama

Te Tauāki o Ngā Putanga o Te Aho Matua

Ko te pūtake o Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa, ko te whakaako i ngā ākonga Māori i te reo Māori, mā te reo Māori, ā, i raro i ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua. E pou here ana Te Aho Matua i ngā uaratanga, ngā whakapono, me ngā whakaritenga o te whānau, mō rātou ka puta i te kōhanga reo, me ngā ākonga hoki o te kura teina, tae atu ki te wharekura, te wānanga hoki.

Te Tirohanga a te Whānau mō Te Aho Matua

“Whāia te Tino Rangatiratanga”

“E whā ngā pou mana, hei ārahi i a tātou te whānau o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa – te mana atua, te mana whenua, te mana tangata, te mana tamariki.”

Ka whakanuia e te whānau ngā pou e whā e ārahi ana i tō rātou wawata, i te wawata anō hoki o ia tangata, arā, ko te tino rangatiratanga. Ka ārahi ia pou i te whānau ki te whakatutuki i tō rātou tirohanga me te whakapuakitanga o tā rātou marautanga, hei painga mō te katoa o ngā ākonga me te whānau. E hāngai ana ngā pou whā ki ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua, ā, e whakarato ana hoki i te tino angamahi mō te aromātai i ngā paetae ākonga me ngā putanga.

Te Kaupapa Aromātai

I whakawhanakehia e te whānau te kaupapa arotahi mō tēnei arotake, nā te tāutu i te arotahi a te poari. I whakaae te Tari Arotake Mātauranga me te kura ki te whakamahi i Ngā Pou e Whā hei pūtake mō te aromātai.

4. Ngā Whakaaturanga Aromātai o ngā Kaupapa

Ngā Tino Uaratanga

Ka whakaatu ngā ākonga i te waiora ā-tinana, ā-wairua hoki ki tētahi taiao e arotahi ana ki te mana atua, te mana whenua, te mana tangata, me te mana tamariki.

Te Ira Tangata

He pakari ngā ākonga - ā-tinana, ā-wairua, ā-waiora hoki.

Ka akiaki, ka whakatauira hoki te whānau i ngā mahi hauora. Ko te kori tinana tētahi āhuatanga nui o te hōtaka o te kura mō ngā ākonga me te whānau. Ka aroturuki i te pakari o te tinana o ia ākonga, ā, he hihiri ngā ākonga ki te whakapai ake i a rātou anō. Ka whai wāhi atu ngā tino mātanga, mai i te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo hākinakina, hōtaka kori tinana hoki, ā, ka whakapuaki rātou i ō rātou mōhiotanga. Ka tautoko rātou i ngā ākonga ki te eke ki ngā taumata teitei, ki ō rātou ake pūmanawatanga anō hoki, i roto i ngā kaupapa ā-rohe, ā-motu, o te ao anō hoki. Ka āta whakarite te whānau i ngā rauemi e tika ana hei hāpai i te tino ekenga ki ngā taumata teitei o te hākinakina me te kori tinana.

Ka whakarato te whānau i ngā whai wāhitanga mō ngā ākonga ki te ako me te whai wāhi atu ki ngā whakawhitinga kōrero e pā ana ki ngā take matua o ō rātou iwi, ō rātou hapū hoki. Nō nā tata tonu nei i tū ai ngā hui ki tō rātou rohe, mō ngā kerēme a ngā hapū me ngā iwi e whakatakotohia ana ki te Rōpū Whakamana i te Tiriti o Waitangi. Kua whai wāhi atu ngā ākonga ki aua hui, ki reira whakarongo atu ai i ngā kōrero e pā ana ki ō rātou hītori, ō rātou whakapapa, ō rātou hononga ki te whenua, me ngā take tōrangapū, papori, ōhanga hoki e whai pānga ana ki a rātou, me ō rātou whānau.

He tino puna mātauranga tō ngā kaumātua e whakatauira ana, e whakaako ana hoki i ngā karakia, ngā waiata me ngā mōteatea kua tuku iho mai, ā, he tino mōhiotanga o roto e pā ana ki ngā iwi me ngā hapū. E mārama ana, e whakanui ana hoki ngā kaimahi me te whānau i te hirahiratanga o te whakapuaki mōhiotanga o ngā kaumātua ki ngā ākonga i te kura, hei āta whakarite i te tino pūmautanga o te hapū me te iwi.

E mōhio ana te whānau ki ngā kawenga o tēnā me tēnā o rātou, ki te whakamana i ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua. Ka whai whakaaro ngā mema o te whānau ki te whai pānga o ngā mātāpono o Te Aho Matua ki te āhua o tō rātou noho, me ā rātou whakaritenga. Ka whakaaro nui rātou ki tā rātou kawenga ki te kaupapa o Te Aho Matua.

E mōhio ana ngā ākonga, he mea nui te whai i ngā mahi hauora.

Ka whai wāhi atu ngā ākonga ki ngā taumahi e poipoi ana i te whakawhanaketanga ā-tinana.

He pārekareka ki ngā ākonga ngā mahi kori tinana.

Ka whai wāhi ngā ākonga ki te whānuitanga o ngā horopaki ka whai pānga ki te whai wāhitanga o ngā karakia, ngā waiata, me ngā mōteatea.

Te reo Māori

E rumakina ana ngā ākonga ki te reo me ngā tikanga Māori, puta noa i te rā.

Ka whakapuakihia e te whānau, te ngākau nui ki te whakapūmau i te reo o Muriwhenua, hei hāpai i te whānuitanga o te tupu me te pūmautanga o ngā iwi e rima o te rohe. Ka āta whakamahia ngā karakia, ngā whakatauāki, me ngā kīwaha o te rohe, hei āta whakatinana i te horopaki, hei āta whakawhanake hoki i te hōhonutanga o te māramatanga ki ngā tikanga, ngā hītori, me te taiao māori. Ka whakaako ngā kaiako i te reo o ō rātou iwi, ā, he tokomaha hoki o rātou e hono ā-whakapapa ana ki a Muriwhenua. Ka hāpai i ngā ākonga, ki te āta mārama, me te whakamahi tōtika hoki i ngā karakia, ngā whakatauāki me ngā kīwaha.

Whakamahia ai e te whānau te reo Māori i ngā wā katoa, puta noa i te kura. He nui ā rātou tūmanako mō ngā ākonga, kia ū hoki rātou ki te reo Māori i ngā wā katoa.

2. Te Aho Matua Summary

“Whaia te Tino Rangatiratanga”

“E wha ngā pou mana, hei arahi i a tātou te whānau o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa – te mana atua, te mana whenua, te mana tangata, te mana tamariki.”

Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa was established in 1993 in Kaitaia. The purpose of the kura is to educate Māori students in and through the medium of te reo Māori according to the principles of Te Aho Matua. Whānau recognise four pou that support their collective and individual aspiration for tino rangatiratanga. Each pou guides the whānau towards the realisation of their vision.Ngā pou e whāare aligned to the principles of Te Aho Matua which provide a clear framework for the evaluation of student achievement and outcomes.

Students display physical and spiritual well-being in an environment that focuses on mana atua, mana whenua, mana tangata and mana tamariki. Physical fitness is a significant part of the kura programme for students and whānau. Students are immersed in te reo and tikanga Māori throughout the day. Whānau express a commitment to the revitalisation of te reo o Muriwhenua to support the long term growth and sustainability of the five iwi in the region. Karakia, whakatauāki and kīwaha, particular to the area, are used extensively to convey meaning and develop a deep understanding of tikanga, history and the natural environment.

Kaumātua play a significant role in supporting student’s learning about te reo and tikanga Māori of the area. They share in-depth knowledge about the history of their people and the natural environment. Local iwi knowledge is integrated into the kura curriculum. Kaitiakitanga in relation to the land is a key element of students’ learning. Students regularly visit local marae to learn about the history, whakapapa and links between the iwi in the region throughout the year.

Whānau and kaimahi provide a wide range of opportunities for students to investigate and explore the Māori world and the wider world beyond. Kaimahi take full advantage of local, regional and national events for kura kaupapa Māori. Whānau and kaimahi encourage students to be actively engaged in their learning and acknowledge the unique perspectives they experience.

The principal and senior management team, supported by the board, manages the kura well. The board receives regular information about student achievement. The quality of this information could be improved. Curriculum review has been identified by the kura as an area for development. ERO supports this direction.

Future Action

ERO is confident that the board of trustees can manage the kura in the interests of the students and the Crown and bring about the improvements outlined in this report.

ERO will review the kura again as part of the regular review cycle.

3. Introduction

Te Aho Matua Outcome Statement

The purpose of Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Rangi Āniwaniwa is to educate Māori students in and through the medium of te reo Māori according to the principles of Te Aho Matua.

Whānau recognise four pou that support their collective and individual aspirations for tino rangatiratanga. Each pou guides the whānau towards the realisation of their vision and the enactment of their curriculum for the benefit of all students and whānau.Ngā pou e whaare aligned to the principles of Te Aho Matua which provide a clear framework for the evaluation of student achievement and outcomes.

Evaluation Kaupapa

The whānau developed the evaluation kaupapa for the review based on the identification of a focus by the board of trustees. ERO and the kura agreed to useNgā pou e whaas the basis for the evaluation.

4. Evaluation Kaupapa

Nga Tino Uaratanga

Students display physical and spiritual well-being in an environment that focuses on mana atua, mana whenua, mana tangata and mana tamariki.

Te Ira Tangata

They support students to perform to high levels and to their potential in regional, national and international events. Whānau ensure that resources that are needed to support elite performance in sport and fitness are available.

Whānau provide opportunities for students to learn about and engage in discussions about issues that are important and significant to their iwi and hapū. Recently hui have been held in the region to discuss hapū and iwi claims to the Waitangi Tribunal. Students have participated in these hui as observers where they have been privileged to hear firsthand accounts of their history, whakapapa, links to the land and the political, social and economic issues that are relevant to them and their whānau.

Kaumātua expertise is used to model and teach traditional karakia, waiata and mōteatea that contain significant knowledge of the local iwi and hapū. Kaimahi and whānau understand and acknowledge the importance of sharing the knowledge of kaumātua with students at the kura to ensure the long term sustainability of the hapū and iwi.

Karakia, whakatauāki and kīwaha, particular to the area, are used extensively to convey meaning and develop a deep understanding of tikanga, history and the natural environment. Kaiako, many of whom are connected through whakapapa to Muriwhenua, teach language that is specific their iwi. Students are supported to understand and use karakia, whakatauāki and kīwaha appropriately.

Whānau use te reo Māori consistently throughout the kura. They have high expectations for students to maintain te reo Māori at all times. A student council has been established and students appreciate the opportunity to discuss the success of their peers in te reo Māori events such as speech making andNational Certificate of Educational Achievement(NCEA), te reo rangatira. A goal identified by the student council is to monitor and support the use of te reo Māori by all students throughout the kura.

Students discuss the aspirations for their whānau, hapū and iwi.

Students attend a range of Māori, whānau, hapū and iwi events.

Te Ao

Students actively investigate and explore the Māori world and wider world.

Whānau and kaimahi provide a wide range of opportunities for students to investigate and explore the Māori world and the wider world beyond. Kaimahi take full advantage of local, regional and national events for kura kaupapa Māori. They attend sport and cultural events. Sports teams have competed successfully in national and international events. Senior students visit parliament to learn about and experience how the New Zealand political system operates. Students are encouraged and supported to develop a high level of political awareness.

The wharekura and wānanga programme focuses on the needs, interests and aspirations of individual students.

Students demonstrate mīharo.

Students demonstrate links between traditional and contemporary view, tikanga, values and beliefs.

Students use their creative talent to express their understanding.

Ahuatanga Ako

Students are actively engaged in learning.

Whānau provide activities and resources to enhance learning. The whānau has

invested significantly in specialist learning spaces to support student learning and achievement. The indoor pool, fitness equipment and gymnasium allow all students to engage in high levels of physical activity throughout the year. A recently refurbished hospitality space is used to teach basic life skills and knowledge to support students to become independent and self sufficient. The computer suite is well resourced and effectively managed to ensure access to information is readily available.

The principal and kaiako provide learning programmes that support students to:

  • develop a strong sense of pride in their identity and connection to their whānau, hapū and iwi

  • become independent, motivated and competent learners with high aspirations for their own success

  • work cooperatively with each other and others in their community

  • engage in critical and analytical thinking about their physical, social and political environment.

The board employs a wide range of support staff and teacher aides, including a kaumātua, to further enhance the learning programme. They are experts in their respective fields and are positive role models of success and achievement.

Whānau and kaimahi encourage students to be actively engaged in their learning and acknowledge the unique perspectives they bring to their learning. Students have the opportunity to contribute their ideas about the kura through a recently established student council. They speak proudly of the responsibility that they have as members of the student council. They acknowledge the role of kaumātua in their kura and show respect for the knowledge that they can access.

The board receives regular information about student achievement. Kura teina information identifies students who require additional support and monitoring. NCEA information from the wharekura demonstrates student progress and achievement. Where there has been concern raised about achievement in mathematics in 2011, the board, principal and kaiako have responded appropriately to review the programme and make significant improvements in 2012.

Students share and cooperate with others in groups.

Students honour kaumātua as repositories of knowledge.

Students contribute to decision making.

Areas for review and development

Curriculum Review. The whānau and kaimahi identify that a full review of the curriculum as an area for development. The kura would benefit from a curriculum review that is well planned, strategic and comprehensive. A curriculum review would support developing greater consistency in planning and teaching at each level and ensure the necessary skills and knowledge that students need to continue to progress and achieve each year are provided. ERO supports this direction.

Analysing student achievement information.Student achievement information is not well analysed. Better analysis of assessment information is needed to help the board and school leaders make strategic decisions about planning and resourcing throughout the kura.

5. Te Aho Matua Whānau Assurance on Compliance Areas

During the review, the whānau and staff of Te Rangi Āniwaniwa completed theTe Aho Matua Whānau Assurance Statement and Self-Audit Checklist.In this document they have attested that they have taken all reasonable steps to meet their legislative requirements including those detailed in Ministry of Education Circulars and other documents related to the six wahanga of Te Aho Matua.

ERO checked the following items because they have a potentially high impact on outcomes for children:

  • emotional safety (including behaviour management, prevention of bullying and abuse, complaints procedures)

  • physical safety (including policies and procedures relating to EOTC, hazard identification, prevention of physical harm, accidents and medication)

  • staff qualifications and organisation

  • stand-downs, suspensions, expulsion and exclusions

  • monitoring of student attendance.

6. Recommendations

The next step for the board and whānau is:

  • to undertake a planned, strategic and comprehensive review of the kura curriculum

  • seek appropriate support to improve the gathering, analysis and use of student achievement information.

7. Future Action

ERO is confident that the board of trustees can manage the kura in the interests of the students and the Crown and bring about the improvements outlined in this report.

ERO will review the kura again as part of the regular review cycle.

Karakia, whakatauāki and kīwaha, particular to the area, are used extensively to convey meaning and develop a deep understanding of tikanga, history and the natural environment.

Kaumātua play a significant role in supporting student’s learning about te reo and tikanga Māori of the area. They share in-depth knowledge about the history of their people and the natural environment. Local iwi knowledge is integrated in to the kura curriculum. Kaitiakitanga in relation to the land is a key element of students’ learning. Students regularly visit local marae to learn about the history, whakapapa and links between the iwi in the region throughout the year.

Whānau and kaimahi provide a wide range of opportunities for students to investigate and explore the Māori world and the wider world beyond. Kaimahi take full advantage of local, regional and national events for kura kaupapa Māori. Whānau and kaimahi encourage students to be actively engaged in their learning and acknowledge the unique perspectives they experience.

The principal and senior management team, supported by the board, manages the kura well. The board receives regular information about student achievement. The quality of this information could be improved. Curriculum review has been identified by the kura as an area for development. ERO supports this direction.

Future Action

ERO is confident that the board of trustees can manage the kura in the interests of the students and the Crown and bring about the improvements outlined in this report.

ERO will review the kura again as part of the regular review cycle.

Review Coverage

ERO reviews do not cover every aspect of school performance and each ERO report may cover different issues. The aim is to provide information on aspects that are central to student achievement and useful to this school.
