Introducing Darlene Te Karu
Mihi o te tau hou ki a koutou
After a one year secondment with Ihi Research & Development the decision to stay permanently was, shall we say, "a no brainer". I'm loving the opportunity to be a part of Kaha Education and continuing in the role of Kaiārahi delivering Huakina Mai in kura.
I love my mahi because:
* our existence is very simple - to achieve equity in education
* our kaimahi are all on the same waka and kaupapa - striving to provide and be the best we can.
Huakina Mai update:
We have three pilot kura are in the sustainability phase and four new kura are in the implementation phase. We are currently in partnership with iwi and rūnaka exploring opportunities for Huakina Mai to branch out.
