Introducing ourselves with our pepeha.

Tēnā koutou e hoa mai! Ia rā ka kōrero iti ai au i te reo Māori. Mā te takitaki ka maumahara ahau i ngā kupu. Mā te mahi ka whakapai ake ahau. He taonga te reo Māori!

We will make a Centre wide contribution to the Maori Moment by having all classes sing a waiata together on the specified time.

He kaitakaro au o te kemu ko geocaching. No reira i te wa o te wiki o Te Reo Māori, ka tuhituhingia ngā mauhanga e au i roto i te reo. I do geocaching. So in the week of Māori Language I will write all my logs in Te Reo.

Te Akauroa Jacob Toa Whakaihuwaka ki te wāhanga Pei Te Hurinui ki Ngā Whakataetae Manu Kōrero o te Motu

I'm going to improve my competency at speaking Karakia and my pepeha. I'm going to learn some new reo to use. I'll use our new app Te Kākano to practice.

Personally, I will speak te reo Māori first with everyone every time. I will also record all kupu hou in a flipbook and learn them. At work I will encourage everyone to Join Mahuru Māori and the Māori Language Moment. I will make attractive displays for our customers and provide resources to support them all in their reo Journeys.

Sharing Whakatauki, Kiwaha, Kōrero with kaimahi

My journey of fatherhood began in Aotearoa, and I believe that we must honor the sacred ancient wisdom of the Maori people and the language of the Spirits who guided them across the seas. In speaking the language of the ancients, we honor and we heal, and we grow together in unity.

Kai Ora, Our team takes pride in incorporating te reo Māori in as much of our daily life as possible. Maori language week gave us the opportunity to do more, with a different theme each day, eg learning the days of the week, and using more greetings etc. Some of us learned and shared our mihi, and one lucky recipient enjoyed the team singing hari huritau.

I want to reclaim my mother tongue and never speak English ever again

He Toa Reo Māori, 50 years on. A wonderful experience for our small rōpū of tamariki. They listened to Moana Maniapoto speak of the roles of Ngā Tamatoa and Te Rōpū Reo Māori and how they fought for the revitalisation of te reo Māori. They also had the opportunity to kanikani in front of Rob Ruha and received a special shout out. Whakarongo ki te reo māori e karanga nei. Whakarongo ki nga akoranga rangatira. Listen, the language is calling you. Listen, and learn the language of the chiefs.

Pronounciation of Mateponapona Aotearoa, Arthritis New Zealand's new name.

Today we established our very own Youth Council and announced our Māori representative Aaliyah. To show our support we performed for the first time a haka to Aaliyah and celebrated her with a beautiful korowai made from one of our local Taranaki whānau. It was exciting to be able to do the haka that we have been practising this term in an authentic experience and to do this for one of our learners was ka rawe!

I haere mātou, Te Puāwaitanga o Te Kākano ki Te Papa ki te whakarongo ki ngā pūrakau me te New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. He tino mīharo ērā pūrākau me te rāngai puoro.

I tēnei wiki, our kura has been buzzing with all the Te Reo Māori we have been hearing in the playground. We issued a wero to our tamariki with the incentive that every time they were heard speaking Māori at kura, they would get a ticket to enter the kaha ki te reo prize draw. Whakaahua: ētahi o ngā toa mo te kaha ki te korero draw.

Whakaata: One of our daily wero winners. Kaupapa was pāngarau- ngā ahuatanga Whakaahua: Ngā toa mō te whakataetae mahi toi mō ngā tuakana. Kaupapa: Poipoia te kākano kia puawai and how it relates to their learning journey at kura.

Year 11 French students played a Quizlet Live game with vocabulary in te reo Māori and te reo Wiwi. Then they read about Maui the creation of Aotearoa.

The boys had fun trying to trap the opposition.

On the 50th anniversary of the Māori Language Petition, a collective rōpū of the Regional Tourism Organisations of Aotearoa did a waiata together in Murihiku as part of the Te Mai Ūnga Destination Management wānanga and celebrations. Kia kaha te reo Māori!

This tells me about myself and where my family comes from.

I parakatihi mātou ngā waiata Māori, me, I kai mātou wetahi o ngā paraoa parai!

I wanted to make something to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth. Vanessa Van Hoof helped translate the English to Te Reo so the display could be bi-lingual.

I haere mātou ki Te Papa ki te whakarongo ki ngā pūrakau me te NZSO, tino rawe to konohete. We took our whole syndicate, years 4-6, to Te Papa to listen to the stories being read in te reo Māori. It was an awesome experience for our tamariki who are in auraki. Tenei te mihi ki Te Papa for te free experience for our tamariki, wonderful way to whakanuia te wiki o te reo Māori.

Kia ora e te whānau o Whāraurau! :D

Kahoot quiz for Māori words

Creating weather booklets in te reo and learning about myths/legends and symbols then creating art work!

I had to do some searching for rorohiko. I found out that roro means brain, and hiko means electricity so computer is like an electric brain :) I really liked how this is described in the language.

I planted a ti tree for the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Petition to bring Te Reo Maori back into the schools in Aotearoa. Today 14th September 2022. Te wiki o te Reo Maori.

Ko Panikere te maunga Ko Waikaretaheke te awa Ko Matatua te waka Ko Tahoe te iwi Ko Te whanau pani te hapu Ko Waimako te marae Ko Matāmua toku whanau Ko Ana Baxter toku ingoa

I have learned my pepeha and I can kinda memorize it now I have to learn my school pepeha and learn how to memorize it so when someone comes and tells me what my pepeha is I can tell them.

I will write about what I have done to celebrate Te Reo Maori. I might even record what I have done. E. G my pepeha or my Learning Te Reo Maori video. I have learnt how to say the days of the weeks in Maori and I have learnt my Pepeha.

I learnt/ how to pronounce my personal Pepeha and I also know the days of the week in maori and my class and I have been saying our daily maori lords prayer in the mornings.

I have been learning how to write, learn, and say my own pepeha

I learnt the lord's prayer in Maori, I wrote and am learning my pepeha, and everyday at school we write the date in Maori for example: Raapa 14 Mahuru 2022.

I learned how to say my pepeha, know the Maori lords prayer, months in Maori, days in Maori, researched about Waitangi day,

I will keep on saying the lords prayer in Maori and to help work on the Maori language.

I share my name and origins as part of Aotearoantanga

I want to participate in Māori language week to deepen and strengthen my relationship with the heritage and culture of New Zealand

I am looking forward to learning new kupu hou and sharing with workmates.

Tēnā koutou. The countdown is on! Looking forward to next week and connecting with all the reo initiatives going on. Especially in regard to acknowledging the mahi of our Tipuna who, without their foresight, knowledge and commitment, we wouldn't have it protected and cherished as the taonga it is today. Many of these Rangatira have passed and it is sad when we reflect on the fact that they are not here to witness the product of their Mahi. I like to think they would be proud. 'Tama tū, Tama ora. Tama noho, Tama mate. ' Nga mihi nunui ki a koutou.

Over a 5 week period we are opening a wahi to korero māori, play kemu, sing Waiata, whakawhanaungatanga, rangahau

i learned how to make my pepeha

We write the date in Maori and we say the Maori date everyday.

Ive learnt how to say the lord's prayer in maori from monday to friday every week and I've also learn how to say my pepeha. I ve also like the country that i am in because im in a country where the New zealand was name after maori.

I tō mātou kura, te mahi o te mihimihi o te ata, ngā pepeha o ia tamaiti, ngā tikanga Māori, ngā uara hoki, he mea māori mō mātou, nā reira, ka rapu tonu mātou ki ētahi atu mea ki te whakanuia, ki te whakahonore i te Reo Māori, i te Ao Māori. Otira, ka mahia ngā kemu Māori me ētahi waiata e o mātou akonga tuakana. Kā rangahau hoki i ngā ahua o ngā atua Māori.

Our office group have a challenge set out for the week to: - include a TE REO greeting and sign off in all email communications. - We printed of the Post Cards, laminated to the Size of playing cards and made a "KUPU MĀORI KEYRINGS" for all to hang on their screen. . . - Each day they must use one of those words in a full TE REO sentence. - All that participate will receive a Whittakers TE REO Chocolate Bar as a token to thank them for embracing the kaupapa.

Our Tiny Nation whānau came together from across the regions, to introduce ourselves and where in Aotearoa we live. We also encouraged our home-based educators to share their pepeha. Tiny Nation is home-based care and education with a difference, our vision is to empower children to reach their full potential. We do this by partnering with professional educators and nannies. We’re on a journey to grow high-quality home-based early learning and care.

I graduated in a Māori course for what I did through wananga

Our Senior Satellite Class at Glenfield College performed "Purea Nea" to their fellow students from Wairau Valley Special School. Ākonga loved making up their own actions to the waiata. It was a wonderful day of coming together, sharing and celebrating our love of Te reo Māori. Sandy Vandenberg

Kia Ora Whanau here are some links to some Waiata which my friend and I did as part of the celebration of Te Wiki o te reo Maori as a pakeha myself i think its important that we are as zealous in our appreciation and promotion of te reo o tangata whenua o Aotearoa as those of previous generations were in their endeavours to curb it nga mihi https://l. facebook. com/l. php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutube. com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DFeQJhtMgQe0%26feature%3Dshare%26fbclid%3DIwAR2IInCmPbKMyWrt5o1sLjmdet1Mlo6Mr0gZ5xRkyvMBfgKaANAUUCv3l7Q&h=AT1USf5JlhJLxUNw3xZXXRKjk-xy_f4g-osAjBN9O3rlvTcuKNjGo1KJeg46HAtDWcLy8NtwLbMrHJf0agEPxJtJTSkXIHR7eOwyw_xQmsM2l1ifrwUhb0C0SaQCgMfmglQAVISwUs7w5_NEENSwh5J5eA&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT3o4rKqJDvyw02-p-3CvPX4e0sH3RVMcAdajJFQY8ifdQPJUHBov-OI_hfVBxebYZ8USme0vMLdm-kW2gqw_fAO8ph9z-AT9zDruN8LbRh__pjeJuuQKYXQstVUS0e6gIQx_D2uuDYsryRRUgbZ2gAPfcw-DCICKwcLj7wz5kLSou1n23Hp https://l. facebook. com/l. php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu. be%2Fj2wG-mwNFEo%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR3rnY0Q_k5XGd5SndZWhKguQCxaXOA38aHhtK2Z4PoZozQVoyFxgfb1baA&h=AT0MV-d5ooBaRvstI-KuORuMne5eqSDuUSY1FVbXcVqNwJ5qGBeRK2_MH1dSk265vFyDFN_eW8utxksAin8YRVhVRj3zvBQc7KDv9Uz2Cv5xRZKjvGjJ33Dk0eCM-T2tXiy9zRDQ5h8e2FDMstbQ-7hHMQ&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT2cPQ3FXwm5TpgQX5j6mD-6wKROrEcnj57ste3KTWb3yxtUn8RcsEHz5T4zE5U57VtgteUZePhAZKH6QtccY_0OXp-qdZ2R9FvGZHnfFa42-c2pKhlW3cWZ4LN8R6IqjFXDwx2bTH-Hostrc83pz1AnqMfvCCGy5ZSonUkjtZyFFR77huL0 https://l. facebook. com/l. php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu. be%2FqMWoYLqHyXE%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR2cucm28-nqtFsKRCdvUljRmvZRN0qh-fWAdpydkJ9xY_9Cja0HFBdNtl0&h=AT0Zq7vup7HzjoEgVSLDqRngsl8tNgIIFSZs6Ek64VRq9Lz7yKDXSECVrLeHhMq2zSI5FTkQZDJOQtWoVpkqWTFJWlT-R3Vy19TFuRphqAhHEfBHYYat8hkYi306ka_43k71FTACrSfuoa2r8_0d_pMjrg&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT1CWoMaODXN8X2gop0Y6y9FhZTTsKgjzgQLjGHTo8_o74YUqdEI-8M4t-Sb7d4G0Wff1LV5wbBSm5yGmTJ5rLa7b0VrDJAUBUP4nDLVV0khLBAb68hl6p8PT9gufX8eeghNRtIjT7FyMn7LzIaTDwDdnzhqZ__FS6ifzvJqVW5iE4X5ZwCj https://l. facebook. com/l. php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu. be%2Fpghh6R0i6x0%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1ZvQ4c-PHG1zL7MlFfQxPUwxFx-6Nq_cBjhiP2iTM7uis5xfE6N3ISVE4&h=AT3X2icQxDEF-giwqliyqVqCzIDtyz52vMS4Trp4GHm_Lmm0eSPSmdnJo_2UflLJ_lXlXFgAoDplpG7ISgLLx2y53h9GvsoIWPbEhsDI4UO4ZCZBPeZ57l7Nt_sE8RaeWVy7NKtpPWPoi6rsHmHX8hoeOA&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT2bhwcH4jASyOHrGeVM0XRUOlzZHhdVNpGwC4g5pOsWClAx4EOJtUNWlVv12ejbZq9lAh_eBq8sjQu721o9HKvZQ4utdzHyhM8hgKrOgDfyb48xuO_dB2LxXO_KvpJDuxph0xw0oaPnnsGbL7JZFkSJXX_ozYZ871cZR1T6-0FhszpYQOUA

Our school gathered together to mark the moment. After an acknowledgement of all the mahi that has gone into revitalising the language across Aotearoa, we sang and did a countdown of kupu i te reo Māori.

We created a Seesaw Activity with help videos and sheets. For their home learning each night, the children taught their parents some basic Te Reo and make videos of whānau saying the Reo phrases together. Kaiako had lots of fun watching and listening to recordings each night. We ended the week with a celebration of afternoon kai with whānau, a small kapa haka performance, and a hui where children presented their parents with certificates that they wrote out for them, including Te Reo praises. It was brilliant and enjoyed by all and we look forward to doing this annually.

We had our first whole school gathering in 2 years and sang / waiata-a-ringa Ngā Iwi E, E Minaka Ana and Tihore Mai. It was loud and proud.

I wrote a kōrero about a show at the rose theatre. An actor sharing he was playing Romeo.

We chose to look at a few whakatauki and how we relate to them and what they mean to us
