KIA KAHA TE REO MAORI
TE WIKI TE REO MAORI (WEEK 8)
He aha te mea nui o te ao, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
What is the most important thing in the world, it is people, it is people, it is people.
This was an emotional week for Homai. This week we had our Maori whanau step up and lead yet another successful week; most of these our beginning teachers. Teachers who took on the role to share their knowledge and help us develop our reo and tikanga Maori. The students yet again experienced and learnt about all things Maori, and even the staff got on board. The challenge for our staff was to learn Paikea (Maori waiata) and haka (Tika tonu) over 4 days. We did have lots of support from our amazing Maori experts, and did well to showcase our learning and appreciation for our Maori whanau.
