E aku taiaha, e aku mere pounamu.
NEI RĀ A MATIHERE E RERE ATU KI A KOUTOU NGĀ RĀKAU-Ā-TŪ.
E mōteatea tonu ana te ngākau ki ngā TOA o mua, mā te mātātahi o nāianei e aru atu i ō rātou tāpore, kia TŪ TOA ai i tēnei ao hou.
Ko Ruahine te maunga,
Ko Oroua te awa,
Ko Tahuriwakanui te hapū.
TŪ TOA is an existing education initiative based at Massey University (Kura Awa, Ruahine and Awanui buildings) which currently has 103 students enrolled through Years 9-13 in 2013.
TŪ TOA-Tai Wananga is a joint initiative between TŪ TOA, Te Wananga o Aotearoa and the Ministry of Education. TŪ TOA provides a varied curriculum that focuses on academic, sporting, and cultural pursuits for the students using a combination of high quality coaches, teachers, and mentors.
Curriculum delivery is multimodal with Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (The Correspondence School) providing direct resources in many of the students subject areas whilst Chemistry, English, Health & Physical Education, ICT, Mathematics, Physics, Te Reo Māori, Te Reo Rangatira, STAR and Gateway delivery is face to face with our TŪ TOA personnel. The blend of text, online and face to face learning with the support of passionate curriculum leadersm supervisors and tutors is now a proven formula for excellence.
All students have individualised plans that reflect their broad career aspirations and needs. Individual plans assist in maintaining a positive blend between students' academic and sporting career pathways. Students individual plans are reviewed three weekly to ensure they are "living documents" focused on students' short, medium and long term outcomes.
Whanau engagement and involvement is critical in the TŪ TOA model, the student and their whanau link to ensure holistic development is achieved with the student centered in the decision making process.
