Māori Language Week 2022

Amaria Picard —

This year is an extra special year as it is the 50th Anniversary of Te Petihana (Māori Language petition). More than 30,000 people from around the country, Māori and non-Māori signed Te Petihana. The petition was led by rangatahi from Te Reo Māori Society and Ngā Tamatoa who wanted te reo Māori taught in all schools.

Our ākonga (learners) enjoy singing and learning how to ask questions and respond with answers. Our focus this term has been around ngā tau (numbers) and ngā kai (food).

Kia kaha te Reo Māori!
