Omaka Marae Kura Kaupapa Story On Te Karere
Blenheim Māori have been granted $1m to establish the first kura Māori in the Marlborough. But it won’t be just any old school.
Te Pā Wānanga aims to be an innovative kaupapa Māori learning village based on Omaka Marae which will incorporate the marae, māra kai, kaumātua flats, an ECE, whare hauora a and a tertiary wānanga branch, embodying their philosophy that education should be from the cradle to the grave.
