Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

This week we have the chance to recognise Te Wiki o te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week).  While this week is really important in its own right, we also recognise it as a chance to move forwards as a School in normalising the use of Te Reo Māori.

– Competitions and Scavenger hunts

– Phrases being encouraged in classes across the week

– Hāngi lunch

– House Haka competition (you are very welcome to come and be part of this as houses perfrom the school haka on Rāmere (Friday) afternoon at 1:30pm
