Te Reo Māori

Te reo Māori, the indigenous language of Aotearoa New Zealand, is a taonga and is guaranteed protection under the Treaty of Waitangi. It was declared an official language of New Zealand in 1987. As a consequence, te reo Māori has a special place in the New Zealand Curriculum.

The curriculum acknowledges the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi and the bicultural foundations of Aotearoa New Zealand. All students have the opportunity to acquire knowledge of te reo Māori me ōna tikanga.

The New Zealand Curriculum, p.9

The resources you will find on this page examine best teaching practice for te reo Māori in English-medium schools and provide examples of this in the classroom and beyond.
