Nau mai, tomo mai
Considering studying te reo Māori? Honestly, best decision ever. Bringing together our love for te reo, small class sizes, and a brand new campus – come and discover why Te Wānanga Ihorangi is the right place for you and your whānau.
The lease has been signed and our contractors are busy planning our brand new Waitākere campus. Located at 3 Smythe Road (Henderson) on the ground floor of the old Waitākere Council Building, this 500 square meter campus will include four classrooms, an open flexible whare-hui, and multiple kitchens.
We will officially open our doors next February 2024 – just in time for semester one! Until then, we will continue working from our temporary offices here at Saint John’s Theological College in East Auckland.

“My mum was the first ancestor since Hawaiki who wasn’t able to speak Māori on her side. That weighs on me yeah but I’m committed to keep going and to make sure that isn’t my story. Nah, for sure that is definitely not going to be my story.”
Christian Gallen (Ngāti Kahungunu),
Te Wānanga Ihorangi graduate
“I needed the push to go further from our kaiako. They were gentle but firm, and met me where I was at. All of a sudden I was doing a karanga, and calling out from a deep place. Reclamation of identity and culture can be tough, but the amazing way the kaiako walked alongside us made a big difference.”
