About Us

Te Karearea brings you news gathered by students on Massey University’s Master of Journalism course. Te Karearea is our native falcon, renowned for its speed and accuracy. Our students aim for speed and accuracy too, as they bring you news from Wellington and beyond.

Our students are required to work in accordance with established journalistic principles. That means identifying themselves and who they are writing for, and reporting you accurately and fairly. It does not mean reporting only what you want us to report. We may seek the views of others in order to provide news that is balanced and fair.

All the news on here is checked by our journalism faculty, to ensure it meets journalistic standards of accuracy, fairness and balance.

We abide by the New Zealand Press Council Statement of Principles. You can read them here
