Kapahaka at Burnham School

Taha Maori

Te Reo Maori is taught across the school.  There is also an opportunity for children to opt into intensive Te Reo lessons on Friday mornings.   These lessons are approximately 45 minutes long and taken by one of our classroom teachers.

All children participate in our Kapahaka group.  This group performs at the Christchurch Schools Cultural Festival each year.

In 2015 we introduced our first bilingual classroom. There is a waiting list for this classroom. Please contact the office if you would like more information.
