Project name: Te Whakarākeitanga o Te Kupenga a Te Huki. Ngā Tukutuku Tuku Kiri.

Creative name:

Project Information:
For too long our whare, Te Kupenga a Te Huki has been left partially clothed and not fully adorned. The aim of this project is for our ākonga to gain skills and capabilities in tukutuku weaving by creating tukutuku panels for our new ‘Houses’ so that our whare can be completed in the future.

Our school ‘House’ names are being reviewed this year (2022) so that they better reflect our ākonga and our community. Students will design and create tukutuku panels for each of the new ‘Houses’. This project will give our students a sense of ownership and connection through physically, and spiritually, weaving their stories into the fabric of our kura.

Students will learn the tikanga and mahi involved in creating tukutuku. There will be an environmental focus with the harvesting of kākaho (stems of toetoe and NOT pampus!). Pingao will be harvested from Porangahau beach from which we will learn about the importance of this plant for mitigating erosion. Learning about sites of local significance through research of the new 'House' names. Creative expression and development of skills in the design and creation of the tukutuku panels. Collaboration and cooperation - it takes two people to create the tukutuku.

Three wānanga will be held for planning/ forming the kaupapa, learning tikanga and mahi tukutuku, harvesting of kākaho (stems of toetoe) and pingao from Porangahau beach and learning about sites of local significance, another for creating the works. Inbetween wānanga, students will be classroom based developing visual literacy with tukutuku and designing/making.

Project starting: February 2023
