Yachting New Zealand Schools Programme RŪNĀ 

Yachting New Zealand Schools Programme RŪNĀ 

Yachting New Zealand invites schools or kura to add sailing to your local curriculum.

We have two modules available across the country in 2022.


Kōkōkaha - Powered By Wind

Kōkōkaha learning experiences are designed for ākonga in years 5 through to 10 and focus on the science technology, engineering and maths involved in harnessing the power of the wind.

Kōkōkaha is available now for schools and kura across Aotearoa New Zealand.

Kōkōkaha includes classroom and sailing learning experiences

Classroom experiences include hands-on activities to help your students learn about the power of the wind. Sailing experiences include going sailing to feel the power of the wind and interacting with a set of resources to understand how sailing technologies work. Learners use the skills and knowledge they acquire to design a technology to harness the power of the wind. They will also get an introduction to safer boating practices and water skills for life.

The following video gives you an insight into what is involved in Kōkōkaha.


Kōrinorino - Our Ancestors' Wake

Kōrinorino focuses on the local history, science, technology and maths associated with settlement of Aotearoa New Zealand. Kōrinorino learning experiences are designed for ākonga in years 5 through to 10 and are intended to provide them with the skills and knowledge to understand the local history of settlement of their area.

Kōrinorino is available to schools and kura across Aotearoa New Zealand from term four in 2022.

Kōrinorino includes classroom and sailing learning experiences

Sailing experiences provide the opportunity for your students to get out on the water and experience what it would be like to be an ocean navigator. During the sailing experience your learners will get out on the water and be like an ocean explorer. They will also participate in a series of hands on activities to familiarise them with some of the technologies used in navigation. They will also get an introduction to safer boating practices and water skills for life.
