Education at Te Puia - Te Kura Kaitiaki
Welcome to our very special classroom, a classroom coloured by the four seasons. Te Puia is a kaitiaki (guardian) for the arts, crafts and culture of Māori. When you visit Te Puia and share in our stories, you too become a guardian of our traditions.
At Te Puia, alongside the informative and interactive opportunities in our galleries, marae and carving and weaving schools, our complimentary Waka Express (bookings necessary) will transport your class through some of our beautiful walking tracks and on to our cooking pool, Ngāraratuatara.
Another memorable attraction for school groups is our Kiwi House. Te Puia’s Kura Kaitiaki Programmes will be an exciting and fun way to learn more about Māori heritage; a living legacy of our people, culture and place.
