What is Kaupapa Māori?

Kaupapa Māori is a learning area rich in Te Ao Māori skills, knowledge and topics. There is a wide variety of kaupapa to explore and engage in, and ample opportunity to connect learning from a Māori context to other subjects offered at Te Kura.

Kaupapa Māori offers eleven main subjects as listed below, and the opportunity to explore more than 80 kaupapa within those subjects.

Learning can be tailored to suit ākonga at all levels of the curriculum, from primary and intermediate to NCEA Levels 1–3.

Ākonga are supported by kaiako, kaimanaaki, whānau and hapori to select pathways of learning relevant to their aspirations, career pathway or interests and passions. Ākonga are encouraged to link with their local area experts, online communities and whānau who have skills and experience to guide them through these learning kaupapa.

For many ākonga, including young adult and adult learners, there are no fees for Kaupapa Māori courses. Please see our Fees page for further information.

What this course involves

Hauora explores two major concepts; personal wellbeing and whānau (or collective) wellbeing. This subfield encourages ākonga to explore principles of hauora, how these relate to whānau wellbeing and practical skills needed to help lead a healthier life. In Hauora you will connect with local hapori, hapu and iwi to support your development of skills and knowledge. Hauora is a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. It explores concepts of physical, mental, spiritual and whānau wellbeing within te ao Māori.
