Kei ngā uri ō Tuperiri, koutou e eke nei ki ngā taumata tiketike i te ao mātauranga, i te ao hauora, i te ao Māori tēnā rā koutou katoa.

Ko te tūāpapa ō Ngā Oha ko te mahi ngātahi me ō tātou uri maha, kia eke ai rātou ki ngā taumata tiketike i te ao e whai nei rātou. Ko te wawata nui, ā tōna wā, ka hoki mai ō tātou uri ki te whāngai i te mātauranga, ā haere nei te wā. 

The foundations of ‘Ngā Oha’ is to work alongside our uri across the world, supporting them to reach excellence in whatever path they choose to follow.

Our hope is that, when the time comes, our uri will return to their communities to share their skills with our whānau.

We’ve partnered with Māori Education Trust 

We’re excited to share that we have partnered with the Māori Education trust to support our tauira in Secondary and Tertiary study. Established in 1961, the Māori Education Trust encourages Māori to pursue further education.

  2. Tuāriki will co-invest with whānau into the learning journeys of their tamaiti who are enrolled in a Māōri-Medium ECE centre by supporting with 50-75% of the total fees for the tamaiti (varying factors will impact the total co-investment from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei – you can read this in the table below).
  3. Tūāriki will encourage whānau to grow their reo capability.

What documents are required?

You don’t need to submit any documents. We will reach out to your Māori Medium ECE to confirm your enrollment. They will need to supply regular invoices to Whai Māia to cover the Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei portion of the co-investment. You will need to cover your portion of the co-investment.

 

What are the values for the Tūāriki Co-Investment?

The co-investment models differ dependent on the age of pēpi and the total hours enrolled. An example of how the co-investment model works is below.

Pēpi Under 2 Years

If a child attends for 20 hours, NWO would fund 15 hours, the whānau would fund 5 hours.

If a child attends for 30 hours, NWO would fund 22.5 hours, the whānau would fund 7.5 hours.

If a child attends for 40 hours, NWO would fund 30 hours, the whānau would fund 10 hours.

If a child attends for 50 hours, NWO would fund 37.5 hours, the whānau would fund 12.5 hours.

Pēpi Over 3 Years

If a child attends for 20 hours, the child would be entitled to 20 hours ECE from the Ministry of Education.

If a child attends for 30 hours, NWO would fund 5 hours, the whānau would fund 5 hours.

If a child attends for 40 hours, NWO would fund 10 hours, the whānau would fund 10 hours.

If a child attends for 50 hours, NWO would fund 15 hours, the whānau would fund 15 hours.
