Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro nōnā te ngahere, ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōnā te ao.

The forest belongs to the bird who feasts on the miro berry, the world belongs to the bird who feasts on education

This course has been designed for akonga who want to connect and learn about the Maori culture and history but perhaps are not as interested in Te Reo Māori  This is a multi-level class open to Yrs 11, 12 and 13, therefore the concept of tuakana/teina is fundamental.

Some of the topics that will be covered are Whakapapa, Pōwhiri, Ngā Manu Kōrero, Mahinga Mai, Rongoā and Māori performing arts. The course also includes a project based element in which akonga design and implement an action which will benefit the community in some way.
