Courses for residential students at Te Wānanga o Raukawa are being delivered online for huringa 1 (semester 1).

In a message to students on March 23, tumuaki (chief executive) Mereana Selby said the Wānanga was stopping all non-essential services and teaching that could be delivered online.

“The [government] direction is to self-isolate to our homes for four weeks, therefore, we anticipate that your redesigned course components will be ready to deliver at the end of this period,” Mereana said. “We will stay in touch.”

The Wānanga will continue to teach the already operating online Iwi & Hapū Studies, MAIT reo online and Poupou Huia Te Reo courses. Tutors will continue to support these courses and will stay in touch with students through mūrau, email and the TWoR app.

“If you are receiving a student allowance, StudyLink have confirmed that student allowances will continue as long as students remain engaged in study.”

Library staff will continue to be available at to assist with queries and researching online resources.

“We urge you to keep communicating with your pūkenga, kaikōkiri and your fellow students.”

Students were urged to:

  •  Stay up to date through

  • Ensure they access their free Office 365 tools to help with study. Email for assistance.

“We have a small window of opportunity as a nation to eliminate this disease, so stay home and stay well.  Kia whakakotahi ai tātou i tēnei wā,” Mereana said.
