Pathway

Te Ao Haka at Level 1 can lead to Te Ao Haka at Level 2 and Level 3 as well as Te Reo Māori at Level 2. Te Ao Haka can lead to many pathways beyond school to pursing a career in Tourism, Performing arts, Education, Music, Drama and many other areas. It is a perfect context to beginning to understand and learn Te Reo & Tikanga Māori, because you need to understand Te Reo to unpack meaning from the songs you learn and how to express its meaning through performance.
