NCEA Level 1 Maori Performing Arts
Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Rameka
The Year 11 course covers the basic components of Māori performing arts and includes waiata, haka, poi and some aspects of Maori weaponry. It is primarily a theory based course where essential knowledge is acquired before embarking onto the more practical aspects of Māori performing arts. It is strongly recommended that students become members of the college kapa haka group to enhance their performance ability and understanding. This will help immensely with achieving the respective standards.
Students will attend one wānanga (overnight stay on school marae) per term with school kapa haka group, as well as one cultural visit to Toi Ohomai.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
It is the policy of Taupo-nui-a-Tia College to have school-wide policies that inform parents and students of the criteria for administering all Assessments for National Qualifications.
Credits listed may change.
