Kia ora our moment brings together some of our library reo learning support group, ‘ngā Pīwakawaka o Mahurangi’ who gather at Mahurangi East Library. We wanted to help our Hāpori to take an interest in having a go at saying our local street names & places correctly. We put the verses together last Te Wīki o te Reo Māori to go with this reo learners ‘foundation waiata’ and we’re going to get the tamariki to sing but we couldn’t get it together fast enough. So this year we pulled it back out again, had a couple of practices at about 11:45am then we did our moment...It might not be pretty, but we are all about a ‘something’s better than nothing’ approach, and it’s working slowly. With many enquirers this week to join in with the rōpū and a school keen to make the waiata their own. Tumeke e te whānau. Mana Māori. Mana motuhake. Mauri ora!
