L2HAKA

Level 2 Te Ao Haka

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Whaea D. Robson

Te Ao Haka is a culturally responsive art form, providing opportunities for all ākonga to engage in Māori culture,  language, and traditional practice. Te Ao Haka is founded on Mātauranga Māori but is progressive in the development and evolution of the art form. 

Students at Level 2 should be experimenting and innovating. This is reflected in the internals' credit values being higher than those of the externals to provide room for creativity and a safe space to develop through taking creative risks. Six credits have been allocated to both internal Achievement Standards for this reason, with the stated aim of bringing out the best in all ākonga in a 'safe' – or familiar – space.

Course Overview

What is taught in courses varies from year to year. This course could include:
The ideas central to all levels are:

• Te Ao Haka is born of its context

• Narratives are the catalyst for all composition

• He taonga tuku iho

• Te Ao Haka is uniquely and recognisably Māori

• Te Ao Haka can only be truly understood through performance.

Pathway

Costs

The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
