"Kia pai te rā" and "Nau mai, haere mai" are just a couple of things I learnt during my time at school. Learning te reo Maori has had a great impact on my life, I now have a better understanding of Aotearoa and English itself. In our class, we learnt many karakia's and say them every morning. Many good things have changed in our school because of Maori, now instead of saying "May I use the bathroom please?" we say it in Maori including asking if we can get a drink or other things.
