Louise | Te Wiki 2023

With the support of a few teachers from Orewa College, i was able to write my pepeha. Coming from the UK in the late 70’s, i was bullied for my accent (it was strong), so i was always conscious of my voice and speaking Te Reo was challenging, but i wanted to show the year 7’s how to overcome the fear and do it anyway I got to present my pepeha to a year 7 class a few weeks back. It was the first time ever speaking my pepeha out loud. I could not have done it with the support and guidance of the teachers and students. Ka Pai!
