Te Reo Māori  Evening with Hēmi Kelly

Te Reo Māori Evening with Hēmi Kelly

On Monday evening, we had the wonderful opportunity to have our staff & wider families learn more Te Reo Māori with Hēmi Kelly. The Poi Room has endeavored to increase the use of Te Reo within our daily interactions, in the hope, of encouraging others to engage in the learning & retention of Te Reo Māori.

This is the first of many evening's that we will be taking part in. Hēmi will continue to guide The Poi Room team in our learnings of Te Reo Māori.
KA PAI // GOOD

HERE ARE SOME EASY WORDS TO USE EVERYDAY...
Please, may we encourage you to take the time to learn & incorporate Te Reo Māori into your everyday kōrero // conversations!
It's truly a beautiful language to learn.

 

It is imperative that as a nation with a rich cultural history, that we do all that we can, to incorporate the people of the land's dialect to flow through our everyday kōrero // conversations. May we be a nation that that is woven together - WHIRIA TE TANGATA // WEAVE THE PEOPLE TOGETHER.
