I am learning better Te Reo pronunciation and writing my Pepeha

I made an effort to korero with colleagues and students in Te Reo during the week.

Usually I sing Samoan or English nursery rhymes to my 8 month old daughter, but this week I’ve been singing some Maori waiata’s I’ve learnt growing up, and describing her body parts in Maori.

I prepared and ran a quiz at school for all students in Years 5-8.

Me and my siblings sung waiata to our nanny and had a nice dinner including all our favourite maori kai.

Kia ora e te iwi, Ko te kaupapa o Mahuru Maori i tenei ahiahi. Kei te mahi kemu o Kahoot, he miniti haumumutanga ki te tupuna me Te Reo Maori, he Waiata o He Honere. Whakamutunga o te karakia 😍😍☺️. .
