Kia ora my name is Hoki - Moana Houkamau.
I am passionate about Leadership in the classroom, in the school,
in the community and in Te Tairawhiti.
My passion is to work with Maori and Pacifica tamariki, in order to provide them
with learning programmes that will raise their achievement levels
and help them reach their full potential.
I am particularly excited about being given the opportunity to apply for the
National Aspiring Principals Programme for 2014
as I know one aspect of the programme is to look at the leadership of
colleagues in raising the achievement of students in school, with a particular
Maori and Pacifica.
Part of my leadership journey has been to take up new challenges.
HereTe Reo Maori
are some of them....
Team Leader for the Whanau Reo Maori - Te Roopu Puhi Kaiariki.
My main responsibility as team leader for Whanau Reo Rua is the delivery of
Te Reo Maori Language programmes throughout the school. Initially this was a
prospect, as all our teachers were at different levels in Te Reo maori. To deal with thi
imahi was employed to take Ataarangi classes once a week. The success of these class
been amazing and we now find teachers more enthusiastic and motivated to use
Te Reo Maori in their classrooms.
For the last 3 years I have been leading the Positive Behaviour 4 Learning contract a
My responsibilities have been to effectively manage school wide change for behavioral
management systems, lead a school wide review of behavior practices

Investing in local solutions by working with the Community Police

LAN FOR THE
Networking with local community and sporting organisations
This year Kaiti school organised the Primary school waka ama regatta.
This involved 10 local and country schools and approximately 120 tamariki.
As an executive member of the Mareikura canoe club, I was able to organise this
event. Part of my responsibility was to secure the club waka and equipment for our
regatta, and co opt club members to assist in the running of this event. Through my
community connections, Sport Tairawhiti and Te Whare Wananga o Aotearoa came
on board to assist with the administration and loading of waka.
The regatta was a great success and a wonderful opportunity for local and country
schools to come together, and have a day of friendly rivalry on the water.
