Māori

Te ao Māori holds a very special place here at Silverdale School, ko te kura o Te Weiti. Many aspects of the Māori world have become a part of “what we do” as a learning whānau. You won’t need to be here long to realise that things like kapa haka, mau rakau, poi, karanga, pōhiri, mahi toi, tikanga Māori and te reo Māori are considered ‘taonga’ or treasures by our staff and students. We believe we all benefit by participating in te ao Māori, through which we can develop a sense of identity and pride in who we are here in Aotearoa.
