Te reo Māori
Te aho arataki marau mō te ako i te reo Māori/Curriculum guidelines for teaching and learning te reo Māori
Ko te reo te manawa pou o te Māori,
Ko te ihi te waimanawa o te tangata,
Ko te roimata, ko te hūpē te waiaroha.
Language is the lifeblood of Māori,
The life force and the sacred energy of man,
Tears and mucus are the spiritual expressions of feelings.
Ko tōku nui, tōku wehi, tōku whakatiketike, tōku reo.
My language is my greatness, my inspiration, that which I hold precious.
Ko te reo Māori te kākahu o te whakaaro, te huarahi i te ao tūroa.
The Māori language is the cloak of thought and the pathway to this natural world.
Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngahere.
Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōna te ao.
The bird that partakes of the miro berry reigns in the forest.
The bird that partakes of the power of knowledge has access to the world.
Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Māori.
Language is the life force of Māori.
Te Aho Arataki Marau is intended to help every English-medium school in New Zealand to design and shape a curriculum that includes te reo Māori, alongside other learning areas.
Eight levels of achievement provide a framework for progression and allow continuity of language learning from year to year.
The levels outlined in Te Aho Arataki Marau target students successfully completing NCEA level 1 at year 11. To do this, students in year 11 be will be completing level 6 of Te Aho Arataki Marau.
