As part of Maori Language Week we are having a Matariki sharing time with Kea class on Thursday.  Please ensure that your Maori God art and observational drawings are complete and ready to present.  If you are in the Manu Taratahi group this should be ready to fly and the 2 play groups ready to perform.  
This year's theme for Maori Language Week is akina to reo, or behind you all the way, which aims for Maori language to be used as a way to support, motivate and encourage people, whether it be on the sporting sidelines or in other pursuits.  Some phrases to try:
Ka mau te wehi - That's outstanding
Kia manawanui - Hang in there
Ka pai hoki koe - Good on you
