Teacher in Charge: Matua T. Tauroa
This full year course focusses on improving the students’ listening (whakarongo), speaking (kōrero), reading (pānui) and writing (tuhi) skills in Te Reo Māori. Students will learn how to talk about their daily routines, future plans, giving directions, describing events. Māori culture, protocols, and traditions are woven into the everyday teaching.
Class trips might include an overnight stay at a marae, attending a pōwhiri, or an outing to celebrate Matariki (the Māori New Year).
This course will fully prepare students for NCEA Level 1 Te Reo Māori.
