Arohatia te Reo is the theme for Māori Language Week, which means to cherish the language. We encourage you, no matter who you are, where you come from, or what you do, to find a way to express how you can use, honour, speak and show your love for the language of our country.
We will be focusing on greetings, days of the week, counting and simple instructions
Here are some ideas that your family can use at home:
Greetings- Morena - Good morning Kia Ora - Hello Tena Koe - Hello to one
person Tena Korua - Hello to two
people Tena Koutou - Hello to all Ka Kite - See you later Ka pai - Well done Aroha nui - Lots of love
Instructions- Whakaronga mai - Listen to
me Titiro mai - Look at me Korero mai - Speak to me Haere mai - Come here Haere ra - Goodbye (to
someone who is leaving) E noho ra - Goodbye (to
someome who is staying)
We will be learning to ask and respond to the following question...
