I whakatūhia e Te Kōhanga Reo te kaupapa “He Manu Pīrere nō Te Kōhanga Reo" hei whakakao mai i ngā mokopuna me ngā whānau kua puta ngā ihu i Te Kōhanga Reo.
Ko te Pīrere, e kōrero ana mō te pīpī manu kua tata te rere, kua rere kē rānei mai i tōna kōhanga, ara, Te Kōhanga Reo.
Ko te wāhanga tuarua o te kōrero ‘nō Te Kōhanga Reo’ he whakawhenua anō i te wāhi i rere atu ai ngā manu pīrere, ā, kia hoki tonu mai rātou ki Te Kōhanga Reo, ki te Kaupapa i poipoi i a rātou.
NGĀ KARAHIPI A TE KŌHANGA REO
Ka puta mai ngā pūtea karahipi mai i te tahua a Te Kōhanga Reo, ngā kaihoko taonga a Te Kōhanga Reo me ngā Karahipi a Taihonoa, he kaupapa nā Te Herenga Waka:
- e 26 ngā karahipi e wātea ana ki ngā Manu Pīrere,
- e 20 ngā karahipi ki te hunga e whai ana i te paetahi, ā, $1000 mano tōna uara,
- e rima ngā karahipi taumata paerua, ā, e $2000 mano tōna uara,
- kotahi te karahipi a Tā Hemi Henare mō te hunga e whai ana i te tākutanga, ā, $10,000 mano tōna uara.
Ko te karahipi a Tā Hemi Henare he tautoko i ngā mokopuna o ngā Kōhanga Reo kia tipu ai rātou hei kaiārahi mō ō rātou hapori, whānau, hapū, iwi. I kīia ai “He Manu Pīrere nō Te Kōhanga Reo.”
HE MANU PĪRERE NŌ TE KŌHANGA REO – TE KŌHANGA REO ALUMNI FOUNDATION
Te Kōhanga Reo established the alumni foundation ‘He Manu Pīrere nō Te Kōhanga Reo’ as a future framework for sustained engagement between, and greater opportunities for graduates of Te Kōhanga Reo and their Whānau.
The term Pīrere is a literal translation for birds who leave or have already left their respective nest, which in this case refers to graduates of Kōhanga Reo ‘language nest’. The second part of the name, ‘nō te Kōhanga Reo’ seeks to reaffirm the place from which these graduates took flight, the Kōhanga Reo that nurtured them, and as a means to encourage continued involvement with the Kaupapa itself.
He Manu Pīrere was launched in November 2017 in Hamilton during the ‘Nōku te reo, Nōku te ao’ Expo. It is part of the innovative framework acknowledging the many graduates of Kaupapa through the new Alumni foundation and the revised scholarships distribution programme.
