This is a full year course that is designed to develop year 11 students in Te Reo Māori to enable them to build upon the language skills developed at year 10. Level 1 Te Reo Māori focuses on learning key Te Reo Māori skill such as whakarongo (listening), kōrero (speaking), tuhituhi (writing) and pānui (reading). The teaching environment will be bilingual. 

During this year students will be challenged to learn and practice Te Reo Māori every day in, and out of class and are encouraged to explore significant events pertaining to their own hapū and iwi and incorporate these into their Internal Achievement Standards - this is also part of our annual haerenga (trip) where our senior classes travels to a different iwi to learn the history and mita (dialect).

Students will be working toward a level where they will gain Excellence in Te Reo Māori at Level 1. Students will learn and practice oral, written and visual forms of Te Reo Māori. 

Te Reo Māori 100 would suit a student with a strong interest in Te Ao Māori (the Māori world). 

Te Reo Māori is also a University approved subject.
