HOW IT WORKS
What is it?
Kōrinorino is an integrated unit of work that focuses on the history, science, technology and maths associated with navigating. Kōrinorino's learning experiences are designed for students in years 5 through to 10 and are intended to provide them with the skills and knowledge to understand the history of settlement of their area. Kōrinorino is available to schools and kura throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
What is included?
Kōrinorino includes classroom and sailing learning experiences. Classroom experiences include activities to help your students learn about the journeys of discovery to Aotearoa New Zealand. Sailing experiences include going sailing and imagining what it was like to sail across the ocean to this land. Learners use the skills and knowledge they acquire to retell the settlement histories of their area.
How to get involved?

We will then provide you with a copy of the teacher guide, set you up with access to the online gallery for posting your student's videos and connect you to a provider for the sailing experience component of Kōrinorino.

Kōrinorino provides the opportunity for your students to get out on the water and experience what it would be like to be an ocean navigator. Kōrinorino sailing experiences take place over a full day.
Up to 30 students can participate in each sailing experience day, which are facilitated by Yachting New Zealand qualified kāiako. All the boats and safety equipment are provided, as are permission slips and RAMs forms.
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.
