At Cornwall Park District  School we have a Kaiako (Teacher) that  teaches Te Reo Māori (Māori language) and Tikanga Māori (Māori customs and traditions) weekly. Classes come down to the Whare Ako ( Room 30 ) to be taught. Whaea Raupo has been a teacher at CPDS for the past 3 years.  She is now taking on the role of Te Reo Māori teacher as of 2022
