Bilingual - Matai House

BilingualPapaki tuana nga tai ki Mauao
I whakanukunukuhia
I whakanekenekehia
I whiuareretia e Hotu a Wahinerua ki te wai

Ki tai wiwi Ki tai wawa Ki te ao marama
Tihei mauri ora

Matai House is a syndicate made up of six classes. The official name for the Maori Bilingual Unit of Matai House is: Te Whanau o Te Maro. Our philosophy for the unit is for students to:

  • work to their full potential
  • develop a sense of pride in yourself
  • hold fast to their Maoritanga
  • up-skill themselves in Mathematics and English both in Maori and English

The Year Seven classes operate at Maori Language Level Two and the Year Eight classes operate at Level One. Our Maori Bilingual Unit offers students an opportunity to learn Te Reo me ona Tikanga in a secure Maori learning
environment with full Marae facilities and classrooms.

Kapa Haka is a compulsory component for you and there is an opportunity to be selected for annual regional competitions to qualify for Nationals every two years.
