Te Reo Māori

E nga mana e nga reo e nga karangatanga maha o te motu tena ra koutou katoa. Te Reo Māori is one of the three National languages of our country, along with English and the NZ Sign Language.

Our Te Reo Māori staff for 2021 are: Danna Robson, Remihana Emery, Wade Cook and Tanya Utting.

Within Te Reo Māori the following subjects are offered:

Level 2 Tikanga

This course gives students the opportunity to learn about Māori culture. It covers a wide range of aspects which inform students of aspects of Māori rules, laws, lore and beliefs. The unit standards covered in this course come from a range of curriculum areas.

Level 3 Tikanga

This course gives students an in-depth understanding of Māori culture. It covers a wide range of aspects which inspire and inform students of all aspects of Māori thought systems, social structures, laws, lore and beliefs. The unit standards available for this course come from a variety of curriculum areas.

All students of all year levels are able to join the Kaiapoi High School Kapahaka ropu. The Kapahaka ropu is heavily involved in greeting the various visitors that come to our school. We also participate in the annual North Canterbury Kapahaka Celebration. Those students that perform at this Celebration are able to gain Kapahaka unit standards. Students are expected to practice at least once a week during their own time and are allowed a certain amount of class time as well. Prior to major events the students will be expected to wananga (intense workshops) during their own time to prepare.
