This is a full year course, designed to extend the fundamental performance and research skills of Māori Performing Arts developed in Year 12. This course is structured to get students to reflect on their own personal journey in Te Ao Haka as well as building an understanding of basic leadership roles that contribute to a successful kapa haka.

During the year, students will need to learn a variety of items and perform these items while on annual senior haerenga (trip). The purpose of the haerenga is to travel to a different iwi to learn the waiata, history and mita (dialect). Students will use their experience on this haerenga to create an item, a waiata or choreograph an existing item.

Year 13 Māori Performing Arts would suit a student with a strong interest in Te Ao Māori (the Māori world), performing and kapa haka. While students are not expected to perform at Polyfest, it is highly recommended as this performance is linked to our Internals. 

This is also an University approved subject.
