Te Reo Māori Learning Options

Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori Options

We have three options to learn Te Reo Māori at Whāngarei Intermediate School.

  1. Rumaki Reo - 80% of the learning time is taught and spoken in Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori.
  2. Reo Rua - 50 to 80% of the learning time is taught and spoken in Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori.
  3. Beginners - 30% of the learning time is taught and spoken in Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori.

All classes learn how to:

  • Go on to the marae
  • Speak or karanga on the marae
  • Waiata including himene and karakia
  • Visit local marae on their annual haerenga and other events such as puanga and te Tōpū o Waimirirangi (which is a fundraising event for our local marae.

If you have any questions about these options, please feel free to contact our school office or contact Matua Te Ringakaha Tia-Ward who is the Team Leader for Te Whānau o Waimirirangi.
