Fufilling the potential of Maori by engaging rangatahi

“Te ara puumanawa – the path of potential”

Maori Achieving As Maori – Fulfilling the potential of Maori by engaging rangatahi,  whanau and the community.  We aim to create a holistic learning environment where rangatahi are comfortable with who they are, where they’re from and where they are heading.

Te Ara Pumanawa aims to draw on cultural knowledge and expertise to support staff and Maori students toward realising their potential.
