Course Description

Recommended Prior Learning

At Level 3 students will have either completed the Achievement Standards or Unit Standards at Level 2.

Te Ao Haka Level 3

Te Ao Haka  explores the many cultural aspects of Kapahaka through performance, tikanga and Te Reo Māori. It encourages creativity through song writing, music, choreography and story telling. 

At this level, students are encouraged to delve deeper into the different genres of waiata and to begin to make sense of the world around them. This understanding will then lead to learning about composition of original waiata and performed in part by the student. Students will keep a diary of their thoughts and trials around learning different genre and to also critically analyse and compare different groups to one another. They will also learn about a specific skill of their choosing and develop their understanding and competency in how to apply and implement this skill in their performance.

Te Ao Haka will offer "Te Ao Haka" Achievement Standards, or, Māori Performing Arts Unit Standards at this Level. 

Te Reo Māori standards will be offered where applicable and at the chosen Level.
