Maori and Pasifika

Maori

Kapahaka

Approximately 9% of our students are Maori.

At Hauraki School all students learn te reo and tikanga Maori. They are encouraged to develop an awareness and appreciation of the central role that language, culture, place and heritage plays in shaping identity and giving meaning and direction to life. Real-life experiences, for example visits to a marae, are provided as part of learning programmes to further develop understanding. Students also learn to value the Maori arts, including performing arts.

One to two per cent of our students are Pasifika.

Again, all students learn to appreciate Pacific cultures in the context of increasing homogenisation of people. Inquiry learning and the performing arts, for example, promote developing their insights and respect for protocol and cultural practices.
