Ka haere tonu ngā mahi o te Tāhuhu kia tutuki pai ai ngā moemoeā o ngā whānau, hapū, iwi e pā ana ki te reo rangatira o tēnei whenua – hei oranga mō tātou katoa.
The final version of the reo Māori curriculum for English–medium schools was launched on 19 March 2009 at Taurua Marae. Te Aho Arataki Marau mō te Ako i Te Reo Māori – Kura Auraki / Curriculum Guidelines for Teaching and Learning Te Reo Māori in English-medium Schools: Years 1–13 is specifically targeted at schools where the main language of instruction is English.
The curriculum is part of the Ministry of Education's three-pronged strategy for the teaching and learning of te reo Māori in schools.
