Rosmini celebrates Te Wiki o te reo Māori

Rosmini celebrates Te Wiki o te reo Māori

Week 9 at Rosmini was a special time as we joined thousands of New Zealanders in celebrating Te Wiki o te reo Māori.

The week began with a moving karakia, and students took part in various Māori language-focused activities in class, including a traditional Māori game of Tapu Ae. The school library showcased a number of interesting and informative books available to borrow.

On Wednesday six kura (schools) travelled to Rosmini to perform Kapa Haka. It was inspiring to see so many young people perform with such pride and passion.

In the early hours of Friday morning some of our kaiako (teachers) prepared a delicious hangi of potatoes, kumara, pumpkin, carrots, cabbage, chicken and pork, with a side of stuffing, which was enjoyed by students and staff at lunchtime!

It was fantastic to hear so much te reo Māori around the school, and to celebrate our special culture.
