Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

Last week saw us celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week) at the College which begun by raising Tino Rangatiratanga, the Māori flag .

Kaimahi (staff) and ākonga (students) enjoyed an array of activities including a Poi workshop, Ngā Motu (Māori Minecraft and a taste of hangi on Wednesday lunchtime. 

Did you know that our Great Scot, Hēmi Pōtatau was one of the speakers who presented Te Petihana Reo Māori to Parliament in 1972? The petition, with 30,000 signatures, called for the recognition and revitalization of Te Reo Māori and was celebrated last week, fifty years on.
