I will korero with my workmates I roto I te reo maori

Ka kōrero au ki ngā tauira i te reo māori.

I txt at least one te reo sentence to someone every day and it became a very natural thing to do. I continue to do it and use te reo whenever I know the word or phrase, both written and particularly, orally

E kai ana māua te tiakarete ki whakanuia te wīki o te reo māori. Ko Miraka Kirīmi te ingoa o te tiakarete nā Whittakers.

Tēnā koutou katoa. He Pou Manaaki ki Te Whatu Ora Nelson Marlborough taku mahi. I joined in with some kaimahi from the Māori Mental Health team at our hōhipera to share waiata. We did this outside the café for staff, patients, and their whānau. It was choice to do this alongside colleagues from another department and to bring some lightness and smiles to those within the hōhipera. I also took some kaimahi from another organisation with me as we were doing a training day together. Good feels!

Set up a display in our reception area. We also had a hangi lunch for all staff

Suzanne Manning, President of NCWNZ, requested that I start including whakataukī in each issue of our newsletter. This is an example of one sent out along with President Manning's opening article urging members to participate in Māori Language Week.

My whole school had different activities on different days of the week and since I'm in Roopu Rangatahi (Māori Kids Group) we got to go around into classes teaching other kids.

I ako ahau i te reo Māori i Te Wānanga o Raukawa. I kōrero ahau i te reo Māori i te kuru. I greeted everyone using only te reo Māori and asked more regularly "Kei te pēhea koe?"

We all sang a waiata over the speaker system at our kura!

For Mahuru Māori we had a different patai each week where you could find a place on the map of the motu that was significant to you and learn to say something about it in te reo Māori.

I haere mātou te Kura o Whitby Collegiate ki Japan (Tokyo). Ko tā mātou mahi ki reira i tākaro i te kemu poiuka. He tino miharo te whakawhanaungatanga ki reira. I whakaako rātou tētahi waiata/poi.
