We had kōrero mai wānanga across the week and then celebrated with tītītoria, waiata and haka.

Took the time to refresh my mihi.

Kei te waiata ahau!

This week I've been using more reo in multiple aspects of my work and home life. Listening to waiata Maori on spotify, using more reo kupu at work (especially - Mo taku tomuri! ), reading reo pukapuka with my pepe and using te reo maori kupu at te papa takaro (eg tiemiemi, retireti, tarere).

Excited about the waiata!

Kia kaha Te Reo Māori! As an immigrant, I understand the value of manaakitanga from the perspective of a recipient, and I have undertaken study and activities to make sure I am a good visitor, albeit for life. Speaking the language is the key to meeting this goal, for life.

This week my team and I have taken part in waiata and kōrero practices. We have also been learning how to use the poi.

I'm attending Te Reo lessons provided by MPI (again) with the amazing Rangihaeata brothers as part of my ongoing learning. This week I made a press-patron contribution to E-Tangata, and shared a rant about this on my facebook https://www. facebook. com/leigh. strange/posts/pfbid02oc5xJ1riYcMtwBkgvoP6HBehE7qzgxZ1k8Lij5QBVWCQ2UwBRNowRPyJ8xdgUZtcl?notif_id=1665041077592181¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic&ref=notif

I've been practising new ways to greet and sign off emails, as well as extending my vocabulary of everyday words

This week i have been supporting team members with pronunciation of words and giving the courage to "give it a go" I was also asked to deliver a Karakia this week on behalf of the team and then asked to share those Karakia around the MBovis programme. Although Te Reo Maori is not apart of my normal vocabulary it is apart of my Culture and i rely a lot on my experience growing up on the Marae to support my peers as much as i can.
