ROTORUA, NEW ZEALAND -- FEBRUARY 12: Te Wharekura o Ngati Rongomai, a Maori school designated to the children who have genealogical connections to this specific Marae and tribal land - allowing them to learn on their own land and property. The school is funded by the crown government - just as the public schools...Many of these students came from mainstream schools and have had to learn Maori. They are all related and so it is like a big family. One girl told me, "The thing I like about this school is no one ever gets bullied because it's only Whanua, or family. I feel safe here."..Ms. Curtis teaches language to the younger kids with song and movement. in the background is Phillipa Moore...Contact: .Tukiterangi Curtis, Principal.matarua@xtra.co.nz.+64 (0)7 3627 174.+64 (0)7 348 8528...Photo By Amy Toensing _________________________________
