Level 1 Te Reo Māori
Teacher in Charge: Ms D. Wainohu
Te Reo o Tōna Ao is the focus of NCEA Level 1. Ākonga (students) are listening, presenting, reading, speaking, and writing formally and informally, and about situations that are familiar to them. The course is based on the Whāinga Paetae (achievement objectives) at Level 6 of the NZ Curriculum - go to 'Useful Links' at the bottom of this page for more information.
Ākonga will select three of the five achievement standards on offer, including Kōrero which is compulsory. An additional standard will be offered to ākonga requiring extension. Focusing on three standards across the year will ensure ākonga gain depth in their learning as well as maintaining their well-being across their full academic and co-curricular workload.
This is subject to change with the NCEA review. Students and whānau will be aware of this at the beginning of 2022 with more details.
Te Reo Māori students have the opportunity to lead the school pōwhiri as well as organising the catering for school events. They become the leaders of Te Ao Māori of the kura.
Te Reo Māori class are often exploring different learning area such as this year, Akonga had the opportunity to perform in the Drama production Waiora.
This course is very student led as akonga choose their topic and content of assessment in relation to Te Ao Māori.
