Te Kāpehu Whetū or the ‘Māori Star Compass’, is the name of our bilingual educational services based in Whangarei. This name, given to us by Matua Hekenukumai Busby, MBE – Northland’s very own Māori icon, combined with the great voyager Kupe’s directions act as a metaphoric guide for us. Sponsored by He Puna Marama Trust, Te Kāpehu Whetū has ‘launched’ a new format for Māori education covering early childhood through to young adults. Watch their 2015 Kapahaka performance at the Taikokerau Regional Secondary Schools Competition at Te Rangianiwaniwa.
