School Case Studies

Mātauranga Māori has been recognised as a key component for Māori students to achieve success in schools. Until now, its impact on food security and nutritional wellbeing among school children had not been explored. This study aimed to understand how select schools in Hawke’s Bay were incorporating mātauranga Māori into their environments to support kai, food security, hauora, and learning for tamariki. By conducting a series of case studies with these primary schools, the research provided valuable insights into the positive contributions of mātauranga Māori. These contributions led to greater food security and nutritional wellbeing, fostering wider learning and success for tamariki.
