Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 4–10 July 2016


Te Wiki o te Reo Māori takes place this year between Monday 4 July and Sunday 10 July. The kaupapa for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2016 is Ākina Te Reo – Give te reo Māori a go! which is about using te reo Māori to support people, to inspire, and to cheer on.

In support of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori the Ministry of Education has sent a one off distribution of resources into schools. These resources have been developed by Te Taura Whiri, the Māori Language Commission and are available for digital download on their site http://www.tetaurawhiri.govt.nz/what-we-do/events-and-promotions/maori-language-week/te-wiki-o-te-reo-maori-resources/

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori provides an opportunity to celebrate and learn te reo Māori, helping to secure its future as a living, dynamic, and rich language. 

Te Taura Whiri has developed 50 phrases in te reo Māori that are simple to use. The phrases will be related to sports events, starting with the Olympics and continuing with other sports and events during the year. The phrases will encourage communities to rally behind our athletes.

NZ Curriculum Online offers ideas, links, and stories to help schools engage with their families and whānau to support the learning of te reo Māori in both the school and home environment.
