Te Tatau ki te Ao Māori

It’s time to join the reo revolution

Te Tatau ki te Ao Māori: Opening the door to the Māori world is professional development designed by teachers for teachers.

It is a safe haven for secondary teachers to begin a journey into te reo Māori.

You will be respected, uplifted and welcomed into a world of language and culture that will enrich your life and your work.

Your kaiako Kōkā-hauwai Tūrei and Hosea Tuita’alili are passionate about planting and nourishing the seeds of language. The precious taonga of te reo Māori is a gift they love to share.

Our work acknowledges Māori as tangata whenua and upholds Te Tiriti o Waitangi. It applies Tangata Whenuatanga and Te Tiriti o Waitangi values within the learning environment and is respectful of all learners’ identity and culture.

The course is inclusive and allows for the varying ability levels and needs of all learners.

This kaupapa fulfills responsibilities for teachers by promoting whanaungatanga with colleagues through professional and respectful collaboration. 

Our values

The course is based on core values we hope you will share.

Whakamana – Uplifting and respecting the mana of each of us

Manaakitanga – Showing hospitality and care towards yourself and others. 

Pono – Being honest and authentic in everything we do

Whanaungatanga – Building meaningful connections with each other and with your own identity. 

Levels

Te Tatau ki te Ao Māori: Opening the door to the Māori world comprises two levels.

Level one

Te Whakatōtanga o te Reo: The planting of the seed

This is the beginner level for kaiako who have no experience in te reo Māori. We will be covering the basics such as mihimihi (self-introduction), nō hea koe (where are you from) oro puare (vowels), oro kati (consonants). 

Waiata and karakia will also be taught to enhance the learning experience. It is here the seed is planted so that teachers may have a base in their Reo journey.

Level two

Te Whakatiputanga o te Reo: The growth of the seed  

Now that teachers have a base in their reo journey, it is through this level that the seed’s growth is fostered.

Who are we?

Kua tae te wā kia whai i te rauoratanga o te reo

Te Tatau ki te Ao Māori: he whakangungu kua waihanga mō ngā kaiako, mā ngā kaiako.

He wāhi haumaru mō ngā kaiako kura tuarua kia tīmata te whai i te reo Māori.

Ka whakautehia, ka hāpaitia, oti rā, ka pōhiritia koe ki te ao o te reo me te ahurea hei kīnaki i tō oranga me āu mahi.

Ko Kōkā-Hauwai Tūrei rāua ko Hosea Tuita’alili ngā kaiako e ngākaunui ana ki te whakatō me te poipoi i ngā kākano o te reo. Ko te reo Māori te taonga e kaha nei rāua te toha atu.

E whakamana ana tō mātou wāhi i te iwi Māori hei tangata whenua, ā, e whakamana ana hoki mātou i Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Kei te whakamana tēnei hōtaka i ngā uara o te Tangata Whenuatanga me Te Tiriti o Waitangi hei huarahi ki te whakaute i te tuakiri me te ahurea o te tangata.

He hōtaka tēnei kua whakarite mō ngā tangata katoa ngā taumata ako me aheinga ako rerekē kia tomo mai.

Ko te kaupapa nei hei tautoko i ngā haepapa a ngā kaiako mā te whakanui i te whanaungatanga i waenga i ngā kaimahi, mā te noho ngaio, me te ako ngātahi hoki.

Ā Mātou Uara

I whakarite tēnei hōtaka me ngā uara matua hei manakotanga mā koutou.

Whakamana – te hāpai me te whakaute i te mana o tēnā me tēnā

Manaakitanga – kia noho marae tātou ki a tātou

Pono – kia pono i ā tatou mahi katoa

Whanaungatanga – kia tūhono ā-ngākau atu ki te tangata me ō tatou tuakiri tūturu.

Ngā Taumata

Te Tatau ki te Ao Māori: e rua ngā wāhanga o tēnei hōtaka

Taumata Tahi

Te Whakatōtanga o te Reo:

He taumata tēnei mō ngā kaiako kua kore e whai wheako i te reo Māori. Ko te mihimihi, tō whakapapa, ngā oro puare me ngā orokati hei aronga ako i tēnei taumata.

Ko te waiata me ngā karakia hei akoranga hoki e kīnaki ai te mahi ako. Anei te wāhi e tō ai te kākano o te reo o ngā ākonga.

Taumata Tuarua

Te Whakatiputanga o te Reo:

Kua tō te reo ināianei, mā te whai i tēnei taumata te kākano o te reo e poipoi ai.

Ko wai māua?
