Tūranga Tangata Rite


Our kura is a community that offers a strong sense of whānau, our learning approach encourages the development of cultural identity within our tauira. We believe our rangatahi deserve to know who they are and where they come from.

Tūranga Tangata Rite delivers educational experiences through Ngā Aho o te Kura Teaching and Learning philosophy. Ngā aho o te kura is realised through Ngā Uara, each having a special focus on a Māori view point and what is deemed crucial education for our Tauira and the healthy functioning of our kura.
