Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori: ideas for Māori Language Week

Te wiki o te reo Māori takes place this year from September 9-15.

Kia Kaha te reo Māori – let’s make Māori language strong - is the theme for the week.

There are a number of resources available on line.

Te Taura Whiri I Te Reo Māori/Māori Language Commission website has Tools for Language Planning – the resource includes a language plan template, self assessment, language plan development, language plan process chart, and review and reflresh.

Te Pā o Rākaihautū: where whānau learn

Te Pā o Rākaihautū in Otautahi Christchurch is funded as a Section 156 designated character school. In practise it is anything but a ‘school’. It is a learning village, where there are no walls separating the different stages of learning – from ECE to ACE; where increasingly there are no walls or barriers between all the services and informal learning that are needed to grow whānau wellbeing.

He reo ora: te reo Māori revitalisation survey

Māori language promotion agency Te Mātāwai is asking people who have organised, participated in, or funded activities to support te reo Māori revitalisation to complete an online survey about their efforts.

He Reo Ora survey was developed by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research as part of a wider research programme. The He Reo Survey will run until April 6.
