The Year 9 Māori course is designed for students who are totally new to learning the Māori language or for students who have basic Māori language skills already. The course develops skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening to Te Reo Māori. The course will cover at least four topics such as: whānau (family), kai (food), kura (school) and mihimihi (greetings). You will also have the chance to do taster lessons in Māori Performing Arts, Māori Arts and Crafts and Māori games. This course can progress to Year 10 Te Reo Maori and NCEA Te Reo Maori.
