Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Tonga o Hoterini - 31/08/2017

1 He Whakamārama

He Kupu Whakataki

Ka whakahaeretia tētahi aromātai tāpiri i runga o te whakataunga ā te Kaitiriwā Toihau Arotake Māori i Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga.

E aromātai ana Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te whānuitanga me te whai hua o ngā mahi ā te kōhanga reo ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i whakatakotohia ai i roto i te pūrongo aromātai mātauranga o mua atu i tēnei, me ētahi atu wāhanga rānei i tāutuhia ai whai muri o taua aromātai.

Ngā Whakataunga mō ngā Whakapuakitanga

Ko tēnei aromātai tāpiri i whakaritea i runga i te aromātai o te whakatutukitanga a te whānau i te whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo, ki ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai e te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, i mua atu, me ngā take rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua aromātai. Ko ngā whakataunga mō ngā whakapuakitanga e pā ana ki tēnei aromātai, ko te titiro ki: 

  • te Mana Reo - te whakapakari i te reo Māori
  • te whakamahere me te aromātai – te whakatinana i ngā tukanga e pā ana ki te aromatawai me te aromātai
  • te whakahaeretanga a te whānau – te arotake i ngā mahere rautaki
  • ngā take i tāutuhia ai whai muri i te arotake o mua. 

2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Tonga o Hoterini ki te tāone o Pārāwai. E whai wāhi ana te whānau ki te whakapūmau i te kaupapa o te kōhanga reo ki tēnei takiwā. I te tau 2015, i tāutuhia ai ki te pūrongo o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga ngā wāhanga maha hei whakapai ake, pērā i te reo Māori, te aromatawai me te aromātai, te aromātai o roto a te whānau, me ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana i ngā herenga ā-ture.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Mana Reo

E whakawhanake ana ngā tamariki i ngā pūkenga ki te whakawhiti whakaaro mā te reo Māori. E whakarato ana te whānau i te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo wheako ako e ahu mai ana i ngā ngākau nuitanga o ngā tamariki, hei hāpai i te whakawhanaketanga o tō rātou reo. Ka whakapuaki ngā kaimahi i ngā kupu hou hei āhuatanga matua o ngā akoranga a ngā tamariki. Ko ngā mahinga o ia rā e hāpai ana i te whakamahinga o ngā tamariki i aua kupu i a rātou e taunekeneke ana ki waenga i a rātou anō i roto i te hōtaka akoranga. E hāpai ana te pānui i te kitenga o ngā tamariki i aua kupu ki te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo horopaki. Nā ngā whakaaturanga i ngā pakitara me te pae pāpāho pāpori ka puta ngā whai wāhitanga mō ngā mema o te whānau ki te ako me te whakamahi i te reo ki ngā kāinga. E ako ana ngā tamariki i te reo Māori.

Te Whakamahere me te Aromātai

E ārahi ana te aromatawai me te aromātai hōtaka i te hōtaka akoranga o ngā tamariki. Ka whakamahi ngā kaimahi i ngā whakaritenga aromatawai hei aroturuki i te ahu whakamua o ngā tamariki me ā rātou akoranga. Ka whakatakoto haere rātou i ngā tuhinga me ngā kōrerorero e pā ana ki ngā mahi a ngā tamariki me ngā whakaahua, ā, ka whakapuakihia ēnei hei tirohanga mā te whānau. Ka akiaki ngā kaimahi i ngā mātua ki te kōrero mō te whakawhanaketanga o ā rātou ake tamariki. Ka whakawhiti kōrero, ka whakapuaki, ka whakamahi hoki ngā kaimahi i ō rātou mōhiotanga e pā ana ki ngā tamariki, hei whakapai ake i te whakapuakitanga o ngā akoranga mā ngā tamariki. Ka whakaarohia anō hoki ngā matea ako o ia tamaiti.

Te Whakahaeretanga a te Whānau

Ko ngā putanga ako o ngā tamariki tētahi kaupapa matua. E whakamanahia ana te whai wāhi mai o ngā kuia me ngā kaumātua ki te hāpai i ngā whakawhanaketanga rautaki i te kōhanga reo. I mahi ngātahi te whānau ki te arotake me te whakahou ake i te tūtohinga me tā rātou mahere rautaki, tae atu hoki ki te tirohanga me ngā tauāki taketake. I whakamahi te whānau i ngā aratohu a te Poari Matua o Ngā Kōhanga Reo ki te whakapai ake i ngā whakaritenga e pā ana ki te tuku mahi. Ko ngā tamariki kei te pūtake o ngā mahere e pā ana ki te pae tawhiti.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka whai ake

E whanake ana ngā whakaritenga e pā ana ki te aromātai o roto. Ahakoa e whakapai ake ana te whānau me ngā kaimahi i ngā whakaritenga ki te kōhanga reo, me āta whakamahere anō hoki rātou i te aromātai o roto, i runga anō i ngā putanga ka whai hua ki ngā tamariki. Ka hāpai tētahi mahere mahi ā-tau i te aro atu a te whānau me ngā kaimahi ki te whakapai tonu me te ahu whakamua, hei whakatutuki i ā rātou kaupapa rautaki matua, hei hāpai ake i te kounga o ngā akoranga, ā, hei whakatutuki anō hoki i ngā herenga ā-ture.

Ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana e ai ki te ture

Kua whakatutukihia e te whānau ngā herenga ā-ture katoa i tāutuhia ai ki te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te tau 2015.

4 Te Taunakitanga

E taunaki ana Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga kia whakapakari tonu te whānau i te aromātai o roto, hei hāpai i te rōnakitanga mauki. 

Hei ā hea Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga aromātai anō ai i te kōhanga reo?

Ka whakahaere anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te aromātai whai muri o Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Tonga o Hoterinii roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Background

Introduction

A supplementary evaluation is undertaken at the discretion of the Deputy Chief Review Officer Māori in the Education Review Office (ERO).

ERO evaluates the extent and effectiveness of actions a kōhanga reo has taken towards addressing issues specified in its previous ERO evaluation and/or any additional areas identified since that evaluation.

Terms of Reference

This supplementary evaluation is based on an evaluation of the performance of the kōhanga reo governing body and management in relation to areas identified in the previous ERO report or issues identified since that evaluation. The terms of reference for this evaluation area to investigate:

  • Mana Reo – strengthen te reo Māori
  • Planning and Evaluation – implement processes for assessment and evaluation
  • Whānau management – review strategic planning
  • Any issues identified since the previous review.

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Tonga o Hoterini is in the Thames township. The whānau contributes to maintaining the presence of kōhanga reo in the region. The previous ERO report in 2015 identified a number of areas for improvement including te reo Māori, assessment and evaluation, whānau internal evaluation and areas of non-compliance.

3 Findings

Mana Reo

Children are developing skills to communicate in te reo Māori. The whānau provides a range of learning experiences based on children’s interests to support their language development. Kaimahi introduce new words as an integral part of children’s learning. Daily activities enable children to use these words as they interact with each other in the learning programme. Reading helps children to see these words in a range of contexts. Wall displays and social media provide whānau members with opportunities to learn and use language in the home. Children are learners of te reo Māori.

Planning and Evaluation

Assessment and programme evaluation guides the learning programme for children. Kaimahi use assessment practices to monitor children’s progress and learning. They record comments and annotations about children’s work and photos which are shared with whānau. Kaimahi encourage parents to talk about their child’s development. Kaimahi discuss, share and use their knowledge about children to improve the delivery of children’s learning. Children’s individual needs are considered.

Whānau management

Children’s learning outcomes are a priority. The kuia and kaumātua are valued for their support of strategic developments in the kōhanga reo. The whānau collectively reviewed and updated the charter, as well as their strategic plan including the vision and mission statements. The whānau used the Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust guidelines to improve employment practices. Children are the focus of forward planning.

Key Next Steps

Internal evaluation practices are developing. Although whānau and kaimahi are improving practices in the kōhanga reo, they need to deliberately plan for internal evaluation based on outcomes for children. An annual action plan will enable whānau and kaimahi to focus on ongoing improvement and progress towards achieving their strategic priorities, supporting quality learning, and meeting legislative requirements.

Areas of non-compliance

The whānau has addressed the non-compliance issues raised in the 2015 ERO report.

4 Recommendation

ERO recommends the whānau continue to strengthen internal evaluation to support long term sustainability.

When is ERO likely to evaluate the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO evaluation of Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Tonga o Hoterini will be in three years.
