Rauemi / Resources

Kia Maanu Kia Ora water safety skills resources for tamariki are provided here.

Taught to tamariki in the context of Wai Puna, means their strengthened connection to wai will provide them more resilience and competencies to enjoy the water safely for long life enjoyment.

A Unit Plan template has been developed from a Māori world view for kaiako (teachers) and their tamariki (akonga, students) in Kura Kaupapa Mäori and mainstream Kura, primarily for Years 1 - 8.


Tamaraki learn to identify different bodies of water and environments in Aotearoa, dangers and hazards across various water environments and traditional methods of behaving and keeping safe in the water.
