Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori

Last week we celebrated Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori (Māori Language week!)

We had some great language lessons and learnt a Waiata with our buddy class.

We had a great Ako session from some Room 10 students, Michael, Curtys and Kenneth. They came in and taught us a game called Pūkana - which we are loving! We also learnt our Mihi's and did some Māori hand art.




We learnt the Waiata E tu Kahikatea with our Room 2 buddies. We then made leaves to wear to represent us standing together as the Kahikatea tree. 
We performed this in our Māori language week assembly!




The words of the Waiata are:
E tu kahikatea
Hei whakapae ururoa

Awhi mai awhi atu
Tatou tatou e


The translation is:
Stand like the kahikatea (tree)
To brave the storms

Embrace and receive
We are one together
