Whanaungatanga Kohanga Reo Background

Whanaungatanga Kohanga Reo has been open since 18th April 1984 it was established by Ngā Whanau O Hemi Tapu Anglican Church, with a roll of 25 mokopuna/tamaiti, they operated from the church for a few years and due to some defects within the ceiling (acoustics) it meant that we would loose our license, hence the reason to relocate the kohanga to the Te Rapa Air force base.
In 2005 we had to vacate the premises to make way for the Tainui Plan, we then relocated to our current premises which is the old Richmond Park Primary School in Bader Street Melville, on month to month lease with MOE.
We are now license for 21 mokopuna/tamaiti, 3 Kaimahi, 1 Kai-whakahaere, and 1 Kaiako, with Kaumatua/Kuia.

Kia tuputu mana Tino Rangatiratanga, me ngā āhuatanga Maori i roto i Te Kohanga Reo hei orange mō te iwi, kia kore ai e ngaro taonga tuku iho a o tatou Tupuna

To hold fast to the taonga passed down from our ancestors, to enable our Mokopuna/Tamaiti to stand tall in this ever – changing world, to grasp the mana of Tino Rangatiratanga

To develop all things Maori in Te Kohanga As a means of strengthening the people, so our language; the gifts passed through the generations; and the Waikato/Tainui dialect, will never be lost.

Te Kohanga Reo is a service provided to all persons committed to the survival of “Te Reo Me Ona Tikanga”

Through the teaching of our Tupuna, a united commitment by the whanau can make the first step a proud and joyful one for all.
