Celebrating our national Language
Te Reo at the Hubs
Kia Ora Massey Whanau
Kei te pehea koe?
This year we gave a big push for Maori language week and had so much fun doing it.
The Manutewhau Hub and the Massey Community Hub, worked together to create five days of Maori phrases for the community to learn and posted them online each day.
The after school groups had so much fun practicing and competing to see who could get the most right.
It was really fun for the Massey Matters staff to learn some new phrases and explore how to say them properly with the help of our awesome community guiding and teaching us.
We also discovered a really amazing app called Kupu, which is free to download on the app store. the app allows you to take a photograph of anything and then gives you the translation in te reo.
We had so much fun photographing everything in the office and learning new words to use in our every day life.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our celebration of our nations most precious language. Our daily phrases challenges are still up at both hubs, so pop in and give it a try.
E hara taku toa i
te toa takitahi,
he toa takitini -
My strength is not as an individual,
but as a collective.
Alone we do not know everything, but together, as a strong community, we can bridge the gaps and learn together.
