I made more of an effort to use Māori phrases throughout my work day at a Preschool.

I made more of an effort to use Māori phrases throughout my work day at a Preschool.

Examples:

"Horoi ou ringaringa" for children to wash their hands before kai time.

"E noho" and "e tu" when encouraging children to sit down or stand up.

"Morena" when greeting people.

"Haere mai" when asking children to come to me.

"Tino pai" and "ka pai" when praising children.

I was proud to be using te reo Māori as it is not my first language and am not always confident to speak it.
