10 Whano (Move with Kiorahi) (Semester 1)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Mansfield

This course aims to give students an understanding of Māori culture and Māori language through Traditional Maori games. This course will help provide students with enough tools to communicate in the target language through a range of different games. This is the taster course and there will be many opportunities for students to gain a cultural experience. Some of these opportunities are: learning about the importance of whakapapa, exploring who you are and where you come from and Purakau traditional stories. This will highlight Maori values and how they were used traditionally and how we use them today. Learners will have the opportunity to compete and prepare for the south island Kiorahi competition.
