KAUPAPA (Principles)

The Kōhanga Reo was inpired by kaumātua for the purpose of the restoration and development of Te Reo me ōna Tikanga within whānau. The Kōhanga Reo movement was a response to the dire state of Te Reo Māori (the Māori language). In 1913 over 90% of Māori school children could speak the language; by 1975 this figure had fallen to less than 5%. The Kōhanga Reo movement was driven by Māori, with an emphasis on a total Māori-language immersion setting and involvement by whānau. The first Kōhanga Reo opened at Wainuiomata in 1982, followed by Waiwhetu and then us here at Kokiri Marae.
