Heke Reo Māori

Diploma in Te Reo Māori

Ko tōku reo tōku ohooho, ko tōku reo tōku māpihi maurea. My language is my awakening, my language is the window to my soul. 

Learn the foundations of the language and gain skills in mihimihi, karakia, waiata and kōrero. You will attend daily classes at the Ōtaki campus, as well as a number of residential seminars, or noho, throughout the year.

Te reo Maōri is what helps to define us as a people, setting us aside from any other culture on earth. As Māori it is our birthright, a gift from our ancestors and one that must be nurtured to evolve for future generations.  

This one year full immersion programme will help to bring forth that seed which lies dormant. If you are seeking to become fluent in te reo Māori then this tohu will ensure you develop proficiency in acquiring the language.  

Taught under tikanga Māori you will start your journey to becoming an exponent of the reo, along with iwi and hapū studies, opening you up to a range of future opportunities across all sectors and preparing you for further study in the degree programme. This is the first year of the Poutuarongo Reo Māori, Bachelor of Te Reo Māori. 

This one year level 5 diploma is also the first year of the three year Poutuarongo Reo Māori (Bachelor of Te Reo Māori).
