TKKM o Te Tonga o Hokianga was established in 2002 and initially operated out of premises
adjacent to Pa Te Aroha marae and then relocated to the current site in 2004. It became a
state funded s1555 kura kaupapa Maori in 2005 (i.e. the School charter requires the school
to operate in accordance with Te Aho Matua) and in 2010 was granted composite school
status (years 1-13).
The kura is Decile 2 and caters for students within the catchment located generally south of
the Hokianga harbour and is situated within the tribal boundaries of Te Hikutu, (Whirinaki)
Ngati Kotokoto, Te Pouka, Ngata Manawa, Te Wairiki and Ngati Kaharau – (Omanaia,
Rawene). The kura is the only Te Aho Matua kura in South and North Hokianga. A small
number of “North side” students are also catered for.
The kura is currently located on a 1.3ha site in School Rd, Whirinaki. The site is too small to
provide the full range of amenity required for the needs of a composite school, or allow for
future growth. It is also low lying and subject to regular inundation from the adjacent stream
and has been subject to some land subsidence. The kura buildings are mainly relocatables
connected to infrastructure services which have been subject to regular failures over the
period of occupancy, for which temporary repairs have been made. Being temporary
structures they do not meet current environmental standards and there are no specialist
facilities available for senior school instruction.
The Ministry of Education is the owner of land located at Koutu Point, Hokianga North
Auckland on which is proposed to build the new kura. The kura is proposed to be open for
the 2019 school year. The project is the design and construction of a Maori immersion school
(years 1-13) with a final roll of 200 students. The school is likely to be built in two (or more)
stages. Stage A will comprise accommodation for 150 students, and the timing and scope of
any subsequent stage(s), up to a maximum total roll of 200, will depend on future growth.
