Kia ora, koutou! Nau mai, haere mai, ki Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2017!
This year Māori Language Week runs from 11 – 17 September. The theme is “Kia ora te reo Māori”, which not only picks up our national greeting, but means literally “Let the Māori Language live”. UC Central Library will be hosting the opening ceremony at 9.30am on Monday 11th September.
Keep an eye out in all four of the UC Libraries for free resource packs, games and events. Both Education and EPS Libraries are holding Wharewhare sessions (Bingo!) and Central and Education Libraries will also be holding Storytime sessions for children – feel free to bring along your younger whānau members.
All UC Libraries will be showing their aroha for te reo Māori, with displays going up and new kupu to learn. Central Library will also be hosting a waiata session – no experience needed. Tau kē!
Check out the Te Wiki o te Reo Māori Programme, which also includes info on where to collect free UC Te Reo Resource Packs for all staff and students.
