WELCOME TO WHIRINAKI WHARE TAONGA EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

We offer programmes to suit all levels of students, from early education right through to secondary. We also have a number of resources for teachers to assist you before, during and after your visit.

At Whirinaki Whare Taonga, we are committed to engaging and exciting learning opportunities for our Tamariki. Through educational packages, we can offer arts experiences that supplement learning inside the classroom, based on your curriculum requirements.

Encouraging and teaching Tamariki the arts is important to what we do and something we very much enjoy. Unfortunately, due to funding cuts from the Ministry of Education, we are currently unable to take any education bookings until the beginning of Term One 2023. In Term One we have an exciting programme aimed at children.
