Te Iwi Matihiko



Te Iwi Matihiko Programme is a transformative experience aimed at empowering young people and their whānau to reflect on and care for their own wellbeing, while also understanding the positive and negative impacts of digital spaces in their lives. Rooted in the core values of mana , manaaki , and kaitiakitanga , this programme provides a strong foundation for exploring and activating these values.


Te Iwi Matihiko addresses the profound impact of Covid-19 on our children's lives, providing them with essential tools to care for their own wellbeing. As the technology industry continues to grow rapidly, it is crucial for tamariki, rangatahi, and pakeke to develop digital literacy. Understanding the values that shape social interactions, staying safe online, and critical thinking are key components in empowering our whānau.
