Nei rā te reo owha ki a koutou katoa, 

 

My mother is from Te Ati Awa and Ngāti Raukawa and my father is from Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa & Rangitāne. 

 

I have been in Otautahi for the past 14 years with my whānau. I have taught in a range of schools and universities. Love our Kōmanawa whānau and design. 

 

This year I am one of 4 Raukura(Assistant Principals) for 2021. My portfolio at Haeata is to oversee Kōmanawa, Te Ao Māori and support and celebrate Māori success at Haeata from year 1-13. 

Over the holiday time, whānau time was my aim, painting and gardening. 

Tū mai Kōmanawa!  Tū mai Haeata!

I was born in Te Puia Springs on the East Coast. Through my mother I whakapapa to Ngāti Porou and the marae of Hiruhārama, Whareponga, Te Aowera and Iritekura. On my father’s side I whakapapa to Te Whānau-ā-Apanui and the marae Wairūrū in Raukokore. My passion is Whakapapa and C Coy, 28th Māori Battalion.

 

I’m excited to be working alongside a very dedicated and skilled group of kaimahi in Kōmanawa.

Ariana Patiole

He uri au nō Te Rarawa, Ngāti Maniapoto me Waikato-Tainui hoki.
Tēnā koutou e te whānau.
I was born and raised in Waikato. I grew up not knowing much of my Māoritanga.
When I became a mother in my late 20’s, I began my journey alongside my tamariki into Te Ao Māori.
I didn’t really immerse myself in the Māori language until we moved to Ōtautahi. My eldest child was three years and my
youngest at the time was four months old (I currently have three tamariki).
It was a journey of overcoming immense fear, a lot of sacrifice and learning to recreate myself.
My Te Reo Māori journey eventually led me to teaching. 
This year I get to be with our teina as part of this amazing family, Kōmanawa. 
I am excited to be teaching your tamariki, to nurture and to bring out their best.
It takes a village to raise a child and I look forward to working with you. Together we will create loving and supportive
relationships for your tamariki.
Ngā mihi nunui ki a koutou.

Kia Ora! I was born in Dunedin. My whānau are from Christchurch so I spent a lot of time here growing up. I have spent the last 20 years traveling around the world a few times, working in the USA, UK, and Australia. My favourite places are South Africa, Spain & Thailand, but there is no place like home, and I’m so excited to have returned home to Aotearoa. 

 

I feel very privileged to be able to teach your most precious taonga, and am excited to be part of such a dynamic team in Kōmanawa.

I truly am passionate about Te Ao Māori and am honoured for the opportunity to teach in kaupapa Māori education to nurture our ākonga of Kōmanawa as they become the best they can be throughout their learning journey and achieve their aspirations.

Ko te pae tawhiti whāia kia tata, ko te pae tata whakamaua kia tina – “Secure the horizons that are close to hand and pursue the more distant horizons so that they may become close”.
