Junior student placed third in regional Te Reo Maori speech competition
On Friday 3 August nearly 30 schools from across the Waikato region competed for an opportunity to stand on the national stage. Hetekia Te Ua stood in the Sir Turi Carroll junior English section and placed third overall, with his speech entitled, “Trust Me with Our Future”. Given that Hetekia is a Year 9 student, he will have an opportunity to improve his standing in this section next year. Thank you to Matua Thompson who supported Hetekia in this competition.
