Te re Maori, the indigenous language of New Zealand, is a taonga and protected under the Treaty of Waitangi.  Therefore at St Paul’s School Te Reo Maori will be the focus.


Students will be given the opportunity to learn Te Reo and Tikanga Maori and communicate this understanding with others, while demonstrating an awareness of the school’s Catholic Character.

Through the learning of Te Reo Maori, all students at St Paul’s School will be encouraged to have pride in their origins, language and culture.
