Celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori 2019 at the UC RecCentre

To celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2019 Maori Language Week at the UC RecCentre for 9 – 15 September, we’ve got some neat stuff for you to try.

Try a FREE Spin Class taught entirely in Te Reo. Join Huhana-Suzanne Carter on Wednesday 11 September at 10.30am, for a special Spin class, taught entirely in Te Reo. This class is open to anyone who’d like to try it, whether you’re a member of the RecCentre or not. No fees, just bring your student or staff ID and sign in at the gate.

Free Stuff for the WHOLE WEEK!
Need a towel? No sweat! Would you like to spin for free? Excellent. Just ask for either of these in Māori, and we’ll loan it to you absolutely free. Both offers valid all week, and all attempts rewarded.

He tāora mōku – Can I have a towel please?  Watch a video
He pāhi eke pahikara māku – Can I have a spin token please?  Watch a video

Head to our UC Rec&Sport youtube page (or use the direct links above) and hear Stacey Niao, one of our awesome team members, speak the questions in Te Reo.

Kia pai tō wiki!

September is FASD Awareness Month

9 September is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Awareness Day and we’d love to see you wearing your red shoes during the whole month of September.

Red Shoes Rock! is about everyday kiwis stepping out in red shoes to build awareness of FASD during September.

Help spread the word by sharing why you’ll be Rocking Red Shoes in September!

#WaiParuKaRaru is the chance for you to have your say about our drinking culture and win some $$HMONEY doing it! It’s an awesome opportunity for young people (aged 16 to 30 years old) to get engaged in the kōrerorero about alcohol-free pregnancies.
