Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori
Posted on 3 July 2016
This week Taupō Primary School joins with the rest of New Zealand in celebrating the special and unique gift Te Reo
Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori – Māori Language Week has been celebrated in New Zealand since 1975. It acknowledges and celebrates the Māori language as a unique cultural treasure for all New Zealanders
In 2016, Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori runs from 4 to 10 Hōngongoi (4 to 10 July.)
If you go to the internet find the link A Beginner’s Kete which will help you with basic vocabulary.
At Taupō Primary School 38% of our students are Māori. We honour and respect the special treasure that New Zealanders share in our Māori language this week and every week.
We are fortunate to have a number of students who speak fluent Māori. They represent us at powhiri and other public
This week at school we will greet each other in Māori and practise at least one phrase in Maori each day. I commit to answering all phone calls with a greeting in Te ReoWatch Andrew Mehrtens as he talks about his part in helping to bring to life the treasure of Te Reo
and a special treat Stan Walker singing Aotearoa - celebrating our beautiful country.
