Papa Kāinga TV

Māori TV

Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV and Māori Television will start education programme broadcasting for early learners and students (Years 1–10) from 9am to 3pm Wednesday 15 April.

Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV will be shown, free to air, on TVNZ channel 2+1 and on TVNZ on Demand, as well as on Sky Channel 502. It will run from 9am to 3pm on school days with programming for children and young people aged 0 to 15, as well as for parents. Home Learning TV will initially be on air for one month – with provision to extend beyond that depending on the COVID-19 situation. "Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV and Māori TV education programming is not intended to replace teachers and kaiako in kōhanga reo, early learning services, kura and schools. The programmes are aimed at children and young people who, for whatever reason, find it tricky to learn online or don’t have hard pack learning resources." More info

Māori Television will also be broadcasting te reo educational programmes (for ages 2 to 18) from 9am to 3pm on school days.

"Māori TV's director of te reo Dr Hinurewa Poutu said programming would be for kōhanga reo students (preschoolers) from 9am to 11am, for kura kaupapa (primary school) students from 11am to 1.45pm, and for wharekura students (high-schoolers) from 1.45pm to 3pm.

Programmes this week will be mostly re-runs of previous educational series introduced by te reo Māori exponents Te Korou Whangataua, Juneea Amohia Silbery and Ani-Piki Tuari." NZ Herald
