Today we had a
KiVa Assembly.

We talked about the ways
and the importance 
of considering others
and the good things 
about others 
and ourselves.

We used love hearts
to draw ways in which 
we are kind to other people.

2016 Māori Language Week

2016 Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

Māori Language Week 2016 is going to be positive, relevant, energetic, fun and exciting! It will show New Zealand that there is a place for the Māori language in our stadiums, on our sports fields, in the news and the ever growing realm of social media. It will also show the country that te reo Māori is a language for all New Zealanders.
The theme for this year is ākina te reo – behind you all the way which is about using te reo Māori to support people, to inspire and to cheer on.
The phrase for this week is -
Kia kaha e hoa mā!  Let’s go team! 

This week Rata Tahi will be learning E papa waiari, the Maori Stick Game.

Watch this space! Kia kaha e hoa ma!
