In October 2022, the Ministry was gifted the platform’s official name and whakapapa by Dr Wayne Ngata: Tāhūrangi.

Tāhū, often referred to as Tāhuhu, is the central ridgepole that runs the length of a wharenui. This pole is important within any whare: it not only holds it up, but depicts the whakapapa of those who descend from it. Its use within the name is also a reflection of Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga, acknowledging that the new curriculum platform is a taonga the Ministry of Education is responsible for.   

Rangi, as in Ipurangi or internet, is used here to describe knowledge that sits within the sky (often referred to as information in ‘the cloud’). Rangi also refers to Ranginui – the atua who takes care of everything across the sky.
