This was our first time singing together as a family like this!
This was our first time singing together as a family like this! It was fitting to sing “Thank You” by Stan Walker as we really appreciated the opportunity to be a small part of Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori 2020 celebrating te reo and promoting its revitalisation. My grandparents were part of the generation scared off using and valuing te reo, so they never passed te reo on. Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori 2020 has been a tāonga nunui for us - a celebration of te reo, courage to kōrero te reo, a time of whakawhanaungatanga with our tamariki, and an opportunity to bring our voices together in waiata. Tēnā rā Te Reo Māori! Kia kaha tātou ki te kōrero Māori!
