Te Kura o Waharoa is a kura who operate through the medium of Te Reo Māori me ngōna tikanga.  We have operated as a level one immersion Māori, however we have had to implement bi-lingual aspects to cater for the needs of our tamariki that we have been attracting.  We also implement mainstream programmes to encourage a well-rounded education for our tamariki.

The kura is situated in the beautiful Waharoa settlement, and is nestled between our scenic and significant mountains, Maungaakawa and Maungatautari.

Our kura upholds the power of the word of God as our shelter. We uphold the principles of the King movement, Ngāti Hauātanga, Ngāti Rangi-te-oro as our stronghold. We acknowledge Raungaiti Marae as our footstool.

Te Kura o Waharoa has been a member of Ngā ringa raupa o ngā Kura ā Iwi for many years under the guidance of prominent Maaori leaders within Maaori education.

It is our hope that we are able to promote and provide quality education in a safe and healthy learning environment to encourage and help grow the vision and aspirations of our Kura.
