Te Kura Māori o Ngā Tapuwae – Future Focussed, Ancestrally Driven
Nga Tapuwae has gone through many phases over their 40 year history and it now sees the school, community and mana whenua coming together in preparation for the opening of their brand new buildings in 2018. This new phase is set to be the realisation of so many hopes, dreams, blood, sweat and tears experienced by all of these key stakeholders in the history of this school.
As the students reflect on the schools vibrant past they will be running two photographic projects capturing the journey that has led Nga Tapuwae to this point. The photographs will be taken by students, and the local community can access these through an exhibition and photographic book.
