Oranga Tumuaki, Oranga Kura Wānanga
The role of school leaders, from Principals to Deputy and Associate Principals through to Heads of Departments and other Project Leads can be stressful and demanding on both a leaders time and spirit.
The Oranga Tumuaki, Oranga Kura Wānanga is an opportunity to share challenges, seek advice and guidance from peers and hear from a range of experts who will share practical strategies that can be implemented in Kura across the network.
The wānanga will be an all day event held at Distinction Rotorua on Thursday 26 November 2020. We look forward to hosting 65 of our school leaders across 27 of our Kura.
For more information on the program and descriptions on each of the workshops, follow the link below.

Whanaungatanga Fund has re-opened
The fund is focused on encouraging ‘whanaungatanga’ by running initiatives that focus on whanaungatanga among our Ngā Kura ā Iwi Uri and Kura. All initiatives will be underpinned by Tukuihotanga (Reo, Tikanga and Mātāpono Taketake) and focused on any element related to Te Tihi o Angitu – Tukuihotanga, Mātauranga and Oranga.
Record of Learning Survey
The Ministry of Education has initiated a project which aims to develop what they have termed a Record of Learning (ROL), a digital file that will travel with ākonga from early learning through to their post-schooling careers.
EDU Systems Ltd has been engaged by the Ministry to consult with ākonga, whānau, kura and iwi to gain insight into what the Māori-medium sector deem important to include in the ROL.
The intention of the ROL is that it will provide useful information about the progress of ākonga not only with regard to their curriculum knowledge and understanding, but about a wide variety of things that the Māori-medium sector decide are important. These may include for example: ngā mātāpono, ngā uara me ngā waiaro, ākonga wellbeing, ākonga interests and capabilities, and ākonga readiness, willingness, and ability to participate in their kura and communities.
At this stage, it is expected that ROL will be ready for optional use by schools and kura from 2021.
Note: This is separate to the Digital New Zealand Record of Achievement (NZRoA) that is generated by NZQA.
If in the survey you indicate that you are interested in discussing your ideas about the ROL template further, Ana Montgomery-Neutze of EDU Systems Ltd. may contact you to arrange a phone call or online hui.
TE RITO PROJECT
Ngā Kura ā Iwi o Aotearoa has withdrawn from engaging in the Te Rito Project (formally known as the Student Information Sharing Initiative) because of concerns around Māori Data Sovereignty. This concern is reflected in many spaces across the country in and outside of education.
EDU Systems (Duane Grace) who developed the KMS technology will continue to work with MOE and the Te Rito team to ensure that the KMS has the technical information required for any future compliance matters.
The following recommendations were approved at the October 2020 Executive Meeting
FEES FOR PLD EVENTS FROM 2021
From 2021 fees will be charged per person for attendance at all NKAI PLD and Event opportunities. NKAI will charge Kura the following rates per person to participate:
- $35.00 +GST for 1 day events including expenses related to food, venue, event management, workshops and activities.
- $100.00 +GST for 2 day [overnight] events including accommodation, food, venue, event management, workshops and activities.
Please note that all NKAI PLD and Event opportunities are heavily subsidised by NKAI.
WITHDRAWALS & CANCELLATIONS FROM REGISTERED EVENTS
NKAI will implement the following 'Withdrawals and Cancellation' stance:
- There is an expectation that all registrations will attend and stay for the duration of the NKAI PLD and Event opportunity. Once registrations close for the NKAI PLD or Event, the Fee is non-refundable.
- If the reason for withdrawal and cancel is invalid and made after the close of registrations a charge will be incurred to cover the costs of the NKAI PLD or Event [accommodation + food costs] + gst.
That the Executive supports the stance to recover the costs incurred due to registered person(s) not attending the PLD or Event for an invalid reason.
