We are a small community Early Childhood Centre located in Te Whanganui a Tara. We sang our repertoire of waiata and kaiako surprised how long our waiata list became over the past few years. Our tamariki were growing as great advocates for te Reo Maori (in the form of waiata/kapa haka). They sang at noon and at the end of the day saying what they did at midday was just a practice! Here is our song list. Tutiro mai nga iwi, E rere taku poi, Te iwa o te Matariki, Nga taniwha o te whanganui a tara, E tu kahikatea, Tirama nga whetu, Waiata tinana, Te aroha, Oma rapati, Tahi-rua-toru-wha, A-E-I-O-U, Tēnā koe-hello to one, Pakipaki tamariki-ma. We keep on growing to arohatia te reo Māori. 😀
