Kia ora Pukehou Whānau,

Make sure you ask your tamariki about what they have been doing in their class to celebrate Te wiki o Te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week).

The classrooms have been involved in some fantastic Maori language learning activites.

We hope to be able to share some on this page once they are published.
