This whakatauki sums up what we do here at Nayland – Manaaki taiohi to achieve their potential.
The Nayland College Te Reo Māori programme has the flexibility to cater for students at different levels of proficiency. This allows all students to progress at a manageable pace and have some success in the process. Each course is adapted as required to meet the needs of the current students.
Te Reo Māori covers the language, customs and traditions in Year 9 and during each successive year builds language development in Kōrero(speaking), Whakarongo (listening), Panui (Reading), Waihanga Tuhi (creative writing) and tuhituhi (writing) .
Students also have the opportunity to attend and/or participate in hui e.g. Powhiri, Ngā Manu Kōrero competitions and Kapa Haka. Kapa Haka is run on a weekly basis to prepare for powhiri and to tautoko the Principal for mihi and powhiri as needed.
Any whanau member is welcome to come and tautoko whanau on their learning journey.
