Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

In Te Reo Māori me ōna Tikanga, students will continue their pathway into ‘Te Ao Māori’.  The focus will be on sentence structure to ensure they develop their capacity to listen to, speak and read Te Reo Māori.  They will create a love of learning Te Reo Māori and tikanga by being immersed in Te Ao Māori activities in kura and in our communities.  They will develop an understanding of the treasure that our reo provides. 

The programme is a progression to increasing knowledge of Te Reo Māori, learning, growing and nurturing our language, an introduction to basic sentence structure, reciting mihi and karanga.  Ākonga will grow their knowledge in the Tikanga of our whare, Te Rau Aroha, and look further into their iwi, hapu and whānau.

They will get an introduction into Te Reo Māori Assessments, Tuhinga, Whakarongo, Kōrero and Pānui to get familiar with what will be required in their pathway into Te Reo Māori me Ōna Tikanga moving into NCEA.
