Healthy Tamariki

We strive to develop the whare tapa whā model of health that encapsulates a Māori view of health and wellness and has four dimensions:

  • Taha wairua (spiritual health) unspoken and unseen energies, faith and spiritual awareness
  • Taha hinengaro (mental health) expressing thoughts and feeling the inseparability of mind and body
  • Taha whānau (family health) how we connect to each other, belonging, sharing and caring
  • Taha tinana (physical health) good physical health, healthy eating, looking after ourselves

The different parts of a wharenui represent each of these dimensions.
