Starting 4th March 2019
The Te Reo Māori Language Course for Beginners is part of Carey’s commitment to the bicultural journey.
The class is fun, interactive and focussed mainly on developing listening and speaking skills.
In the process of learning the basics of te reo Māori we discover who Māori are as tāngata whenua (people of the land) and how relationships might be forged and faith shared. We will learn how to mihi (greet people), say pepeha (introduce ourselves and our families), read and recite karakia (prayers), sing waiata (including songs specifically composed for Carey Baptist College). We also learn whakataukī (appropriate proverbs for sermons and mihi), kīwaha (idiomatic sayings) and about whānau (describing our family relationships), whenua (landmarks of Tamaki Makaurau) and marae (tikanga Māori).
Starting 4th March.
