Te Reo Māori Week
2020's theme was "Kia kaha te reo Māori."
The Year 9 and 10 Te reo students, supported by their kaiako, ran small events promoting the reo throughout the week, in our whare and whare pukapuka. We started with a staff kahoot on Monday and on Thursday, there was a celebration of kai Māori with kaimoana chowder and parāoa parai for all, under the bubble. He tino reka te kai! Mauri ora ki a koutou!
Tōku reo, tōku ohooho. Tōku reo, tōku mapihi maurea. Kia kaha te reo Māori!
Waitakere College encompasses such strong mana when performing the haka.
Here is the clip from the All Blacks during their visit last year.
