Level 3 Te Ao Māori
Teacher in Charge: Whaea B. Henry
TE AO MĀORI – YEAR 13
NCEA LEVEL 3
This course builds upon the successful completion and of NCEA level 2 Te Ao Māori course.
Te Ao Māori denotes the Māori World. While simple in definition, it is rich in meaning and vast in breadth and depth.
Here at Kelston Boy’s High School, Te Ao Māori refers to three key areas covered in this course:
• Te Reo Māori (Māori language)
• Tikanga Māori (protocols and customs)
• Mana Whenua (tribal affiliation, identity, history, stories and resources)
Together, these three areas will provide students with a broad overview and a better understanding of Māori culture and language. Students will be provided with opportunities to observe, learn, and practice oral, forms of Te Reo Māori, engage and interact with others to carry out aspects of ngā tikanga and gain knowledge through research of kaupapa Māori topics. Entry requirement: Level 2 Te Ao Māori course or at the discretion of the HOD Languages.
