KIA ORA/GREETINGS TO OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY

Te wiki o te reo Maori!!  Welcome to Te Reo Maori Week (Maori Language Week).

The chosen theme for 2020 is again ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’.

‘Kia Kaha’ is well understood in New Zealand English with its meaning of ‘be strong’. We often talk about languages as if they are people – talking about language health, strength and revitalisation. So when we say ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ we’re saying  – ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong’.

Strength for an endangered language comes from its status, people being aware of how to support revitalisation, people acquiring and using it and from the language having the right words and terms to be used well for any purpose.

All you need to do is make a deliberate action to use some Te Reo Māori, for example you could greet someone with ‘Kia ora’ or ‘Tēnā koe’, or you could start an email with the same greeting.
