Te Reo/Kapa Haka

At Manurewa West Primary School a specialist te reo Maori teacher is employed to teach all classes basic te reo Maori and Tikanga Maori. The school has embarked on this wonderful journey over the last 3 years to further develop Maori bi-cultural practice across the school. Led by the Cultural Lead Teacher the school’s pepeha, tikanga with regards to whakatau, powhiri and other protocol was developed and is taught and practiced across the school. Our goal as a school is for te reo Maori to be naturally integrated into teaching and learning conversations in all classrooms for all students.
