Curriculum Guidelines for Teaching and Learning Te Reo Māori in English-medium Schools: Years 1-13
Students gain an increased sense of belonging and pride as they come to value New Zealand’s indigenous language and unique cultural heritage. Their learning enables all students of te reo Māori to participate and contribute more effectively as citizens of a multicultural society.
My self-respect, my dignity, my stature come from my language.
Learning te reo Māori, like learning any language, also gives pleasure and leads to personal satisfaction. Teachers need to plan programmes that are enjoyable as well as challenging.
