Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga - 12/01/2017

1 He Whakamārama

He Kupu Whakataki

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

E aromātai ana te arotake tāpiri 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 arotake mātauranga o mua atu i tēnei, me ētahi atu wāhanga rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua arotake.

Ngā Whakataunga mō ngā Whakapuakitanga

Ko tēnei arotake tāpiri i whakaritea i runga o 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 arotake. Ko ngā whakataunga mō ngā whakapuakitanga e pā ana ki tēnei arotake, ko te titiro ki:

  • te whakamahere me te aromātai
  • ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana e ai ki te ture, me
  • ētahi atu take i tāutuhia ai whai muri i te arotake o mua.

2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga ki Papakura, i Tāmaki-makau-rau ki te tonga. Kua mahi ngātahi tonu te Poari Matua o Ngā Kōhanga Reo ki te taha o te whānau, whai muri i te arotake o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te tau 2015, hei hāpai i te whakatutukitanga o ngā rerekētanga me ngā whakapaitanga e tika ana ki te whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo.

E pūrongo ana tēnei arotake i te whānuitanga o te ahu whakamua a te whānau ki te whakatutuki i aua āhuatanga.

3 Te whakamahere me te aromātai

He whakamārama

Kīhai ngā whakaritenga ki te whakamahere i te hōtaka i āta whakawhanakehia, puta noa i te kōhanga reo. Ko te ngoikore o te whakahaeretanga a te whānau i te kōhanga reo, i te pā tōraro ki ngā akoranga a ngā tamariki. I te ngoikore ngā pūnaha whakahaere o te tari. Kīhai te tūtohinga i te mārama, i te whai hua rānei. Kīhai te nuinga o ngā kaupapa here me ngā tukanga i hāngai ai ki te rā, ā, kāhore i te rawaka te ārahitanga o ēnei hei hāpai i te hauora me te haumaru. Kīhai i te rawaka te whakahaere i ngā kaimahi. I te āwangawanga ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana, i ngā herenga ā-ture, me te haumaru ā-tinana hoki o ngā tamariki.

Ngā wāhanga e pai ana te whakahaere

I tāutuhia ki te pūrongo o mua, kīhai te whakamaheretanga i te hōtaka i āta whakawhanakehia, puta noa i te kōhanga reo. He nui te whakapaitanga ake i roto i tēnei āhuatanga. Ka whai wāhi atu ngā tamariki ki te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo wheako akoranga i āta whakamaheretia ai. Ka whai hua ngā mahere ki te ārahi i ngā whakaritenga a ngā kaimahi. Ka whakapuaki te whānau i ō rātou whakaaro ki ngā mahere. Ka whai hua ngā tamariki nā tētahi hōtaka e āta whakaritea ana, ā, e āta whakahaerehia ana hoki.

Kua pai ake te whakahaeretanga me te whai wāhi a te whānau, whai muri i te arotake o mua. Kei te mārama te whānau i te kaupapa o te kōhanga reo i ō rātou tūranga me ā rātou kawenga mahi hoki. Ka arotake te whānau i ā rātou whakahaeretanga me ā rātou whakaritenga, puta noa i ngā wāhanga katoa o te kōhanga reo. He rōpū tūao tō te whānau, ā, ka whakahaere rātou i ngā mahi tari me te whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo i ia rā. Kua whakaritea ngā tukanga ki te whakahaere i ngā kaimahi. Kua whakaritea ngā tuhinga e pā ana ki ngā kaimahi, ā, e hāngai ana hoki ēnei ki te wā. Kua uru katoa rātou ki ngā hōtaka whakangungu a te Poari Matua o Ngā Kōhanga Reo, ā, ka whai wāhi atu hoki rātou ki ngā tūmomo awheawhe, ngā tūmomo wānanga hoki e whakahaerehia ana e ngā kaimahi o te Poari Matua o Ngā Kōhanga Reo. Nā te whanaungatanga me ngā hononga papai, kua whakakotahi te whānau hei painga mō ā rātou tamariki. He tau te tūnga o te kōhanga reo. He harikoa ngā tamariki.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka whai ake

Kei te whanake tonu te reo Māori, puta noa i te kōhanga reo. Mō te nuinga o ngā tamariki, ko te reo Pākehā te reo o te kāinga. Hei whakapakari ake i te whakawhanaketanga reo o ngā tamariki, he mea nui kia rapua e te whānau ngā rautaki ka whakapakari ake i tō rātou āheinga ki te kōrero i te reo Māori.

Ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana e ai ki te ture

Ko ngā wāhanga katoa kīhai i te tutuki ngā herenga ā-ture, ā, i tāutuhia ai hoki ki te pūrongo o mua, kua whakatutuki kētia i nāianei.

4 Ngā Taunakitanga

I whakawhanakehia e Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga me te whānau o te kōhanga reo ngā taunakitanga e whai ake nei, arā:

  • kia toro atu ngā whānau hou ki ngā whai wāhitanga ki te ako i te reo Māori
  • kia whakaoti ngā kaimahi i ā rātou arohaehae.

Te Whakarāpopototanga

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga ki Papakura, ki Tāmaki-makau-rau ki te tonga. Ka whai wāhi atu ngā tamariki ki te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo wheako akoranga e āta whakamaheretia ana. Kua whakaritea ngā tukanga me ngā huarahi e pā ana ki te arotake whaiaro. Ka whakahaere te whānau i te kōhanga reo hei painga mō ā rātou tamariki. 

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

Ka arotake anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga i roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Background

Introduction

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

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

Terms of Reference

This supplementary review 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 review. The terms of reference for this review are to investigate:

  • planning and evaluation

  • areas of non-compliance

  • and any issues identified since the previous review.

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga is in Papakura, South Auckland. Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust (TKRNT) have continued to work with the whānau since the ERO review of 2015 to help bring about the necessary change and improvement to the kōhanga reo operations.

This review reports on the extent of the progress the whānau has made in addressing these areas.

3 Planning and Evaluation

Background

Programme planning practices across the kōhanga reo are not well developed. Poor whānau management of the kōhanga reo has hindered children’s learning. Administration systems are poor. The charter is not clear or useful. Most policies and procedures are outdated and do not provide sufficient guidance to support health and safety. Personnel management is inadequate. Areas of non-compliance, children’s physical safety is a concern.

Areas of progress

The previous report identified that programme planning across the kōhanga reo was not well developed. There has been a marked improvement in this area. Children participate in a variety of well-planned learning experiences. Plans effectively guide kaimahi practice. Whānau contribute their ideas to planning. Children benefit from a programme that is well organised and managed.

Whānau management and participation has improved since the last review. Whānau understand the kaupapa of the kōhanga reo and their roles and responsibilities. Whānau review their operations and practices across all areas of the kōhanga reo. A core group of whānau volunteers run the day to day administration and operational tasks of the kōhanga reo. Personnel management processes are in place. Kaimahi employee documentation is in place and current. They are all enrolled in TKNT training programmes and participate in workshops and wananga run by TKNT staff. Whānaungatanga and positive relationships has brought the whānau together to work for the betterment of their children. The kōhanga reo is in a stable position. Children are happy.

Key Next Steps

Te reo Māori is still developing across the kōhanga reo. Most children come from English speaking homes. In order to strengthen children’s language development it is important that whānau seek strategies to build their capacity to speak Māori.

Areas of non-compliance

All areas of non-compliance identified in the previous report have been addressed.

4 Recommendations

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendations:

  • New whānau to seek opportunities to learn te reo Māori

  • Kaimahi to complete appraisals.

Conclusion

Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga is in Papakura, South Auckland. Children participate in a variety of well-planned learning experiences. Self-review processes and procedures are in place. The whānau manage the kōhanga reo in the interests of their children.

When is ERO likely to review the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO review of Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Maunga Kōhungahunga will be in three years.
