The Mauri Tu Mauri Ora program is a Ministry of Education initiative designed to accelerate the achievement of Māori medium students.
“The programmes will provide flexible, specific and tailored support for ākonga who are not working towards the expected levels in Te Marautanga O Aotearoa – Te Reo Matatini (pānui, kōrero and tuhituhi) and / or Pāngarau (Te Tau me te Taurangi, Te Ine me te Āhuahanga and Te Tauanga). The programmes will accelerate ākonga achievement progress, so that they can fully access the Te Marautanga o Aotearoa at the required pace and time, helping them to get them back on track. We expect that these interventions undertaken with ākonga will inform sustained changes for kaiako and kura”, (MOE 2020).
