The Raukawa Trust Board has had a long-standing interest in education through its involvement in the provision of training programmes, since 1987 under the Māori Access schemes. In addition to these programmes, the Trust Board has continued involvement in education through various initiatives including Te Wānanga o Raukawa, the Hokowhitu Programme (implemented in various intermediate and secondary schools) and the Alternative Education Programme in Cambridge.
The Raukawa Trust Board will be working towards re-developing and launching the Raukawa Education Strategy in the near future. As a part of this development we will be running numerous consultation hui with the wider Raukawa Education Community to determine the state of education within the tribal boundary and determining long term and short term priorities for the Iwi.
Promoting Early Childhood Participation Project
- PPP focuses on communities within the RAUKAWA ROHE where participation in early childhood education is low, and endeavours to facilitate access to quality early childhood education services for non-participating children. Our facilitator for this programme is Moeroa Maea, she has been a valuable member of the Raukawa Trust Board since 2001 and has continued on to help families and their children into early childhood education.
