This week (9 – 15 Mahuru) is Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori – Māori Language Week – and our Kaitohutohu Office has put together a suite of events and activities to help you lift your Reo game.
The theme of the week is toi te kupu, toi te mana, toi te whenua – the permanence of the language, prestige and land – and what better way to celebrate this theme than with the release of our Māori Language Strategy?
Māori Language Strategy
We are pleased to announce that our Māori Language Strategy has been approved by Komiti Kāwanataka and by the Executive Leadership Team (ELT). The full strategy is 12 pages long, so we have a made a handy one-pager for quick reference.
Keep your eyes peeled for our Māori Language Strategy quiz on Tūhono next week – everyone who completes the quiz will go in the draw to win a prize.
Trying to learn Te Reo and worried about your pronunciation? Come along to a fun and non-judgemental session led by Shaun Tahau, Kaiarahi. There is no need to book – just pop in to whichever session suits you.
