This is a half year course which leads on to NCEA L1 Te Ao Māori and/or Te Ao Haka, and then onto study at Years 12 and 13.

Students will develop an understanding of Te Ao Māori (the Māori world). They will have opportunities to learn and use our school karakia, tauparapara, waiata and haka in everyday settings.
