Te Reo Term 4 2016.

Te Reo Term 4 2016.

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that...

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community. The Marae is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi.


We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.
