Te Rūnanga-a-Iwi O Ngāpuhi has teamed up with philanthropic funder JR McKenzie Trust and Kaikohe Intermediate to change the narrative about Maori boys.

General manager Erena Kara says the Kaikohekohe Education Project will tackle reoccurring negative behaviour among early teens that leads to taitama being stood down or suspended from school.

Through early intervention and positive reinforcement, it will try to bring excitement and engagement back into the education system.

Kaikohe Intermediate principal Freda Mōkaraka says it will draw on models that have worked in other regions with positive results.
