Tēnā koutou, ko te wiki o te reo Māori tēnei. Kia kaha te reo Māori! I te Rāhina i te 12 karaka i huihui mai mātou ki te tuku waiata, ki te haka hoki kia whakanui ai i Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori.
Greetings, this is Māori language week. Let’s make Māori language strong!
This Monday at 12 we gathered to sing waiata and haka to celebrate the Māori language moment.
Te Wā tuku reo Māori (the Māori language moment) on the 14th of September at 12 noon commemorated the presentation of the 1972 Māori language petition to parliament. Over 1 million New Zealanders signed up this Monday to take part in a te reo Māori activity at 12 noon.
We also had students out around the school Monday chalk bombing kīwaha, and we will finish our celebrations tomorrow with a shared kai.
Mā tatou katoa te reo Māori e whakarauora! (everyone can contribute to te reo Māori revitalisation).
