Ngā mihi whānui ki ngā waka, ki ngā iwi, ki ngā hapū e tautoko nei i te kaupapa o Te Kotahitanga.
Haere e te taonga
Ki tai wīwī
Ki tai wāwā
Hei kawe kōrero ki te maha e taunaki nei i tēnei hau māpuna.
I whakatūngia a Te Kotahitanga mai i ngā urupare ki nga momo raruraru e pā ana ki ngā tamariki o ngā rōpū auraki kāore nei e eke ki ngā taumata teitei. Nā runga i ngā whakawhanake ngaiotanga rangahau o tēnei kaupapa ka whakaritea i te tau 2001 he whakaaturanga pūkete e hāngai ana ki ngā kōrero a ngā tauira, ngā mātua, kaiako, ngā tumuaki me ngā momo tuhituhi o te ao. I whakatakotohia he hapori ipurangi hei tautoko i a rātou e mahi ana i roto i ngā kura o Te Kotahitanga o Aotearoa.
Te Kotahitanga is a collaborative response to the rising problem of underachievement among Maori students in mainstream schools. As part of this professional development/research project, which began in 2001, the research team developed an Effective Teaching Profile based on suggestions made by Maori students, their parents, their teachers and principals as well as international literature. The online community has been set up to support those working as part of Te Kotahitanga in New Zealand schools.
