Consultation with the sector on Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori provided an opportunity for all kura and Māori-medium settings to give feedback on the design of Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori. Feedback was sought on the degree to which:

  • the whanaketanga were clearly described and easily understood
  • the alignment of the whanaketanga to Te Marautanga o Aotearoa is clear
  • the whanketanga are set at the right curriculum levels.

The Ministry of Education consulted on Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori with:

  1. the Māori-medium sector comprising of teachers, principals, boards of trustee members, education sector groups and iwi; and
  2. whānau.

Consultation took place between March and June 2010.


Māori-medium sector

The Māori-medium sector had an opportunity to feedback on the draft Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori by taking part in a series of workshops held throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and/or by completing feedback forms available from schools or by submitting online feedback.


We asked whānau to tell us how they:

  • would like to be informed of their child’s progress and achievement
  • can be supported to assist their child‘s learning.

Whānau could go to meetings and give their feedback and ideas. Feedback was also provided on feedback forms which were available at schools or online.


Workshops were held in March and April 2010 in the following areas:

  • Turanganui ā Kiwa (Gisborne)
  • Rotorua
  • Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland)
  • Kaitaia
  • Whāngarei
  • Murihiku (Invercargill)
