Upcoming Events


This Invercargill workshop is an opportunity for all staff and volunteers in the ACE sector to attend a reo Māori workshop designed just for you. We know there is increasing demand from our learners, Māori and non-Māori, to provide more reo Māori in the learning environment and workplace. This workshop is a first step to ensuring that we can learn and be comfortable using some level of reo Māori correctly with our colleagues, learners, communities, networks, and, over time, that we increase the use of reo Māori in our everyday work, teaching practices and programmes.

The workshop is a beginner level introduction to learning basic reo Māori. In this first session you will learn karakia (start of day/meetings, end of day/meetings), and mihimihi (simple introductions). In the second session you will learn karakia (to bless food/give thanks for), and a simple waiata. We will also allow time for open discussion/wānanga with questions/answers.

The facilitator for this workshop is Te Ataahia Hurihanganui (Te Arawa, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Ira, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rangitāne).
