Te Koko O Te Reo
Te Koko o Te Reo – celebrating te reo Māori in our schools, homes and our communities is a free public event to connect and engage ākonga and kaiako, as well as whānau and communities with a range of quality te reo Māori resources, tools, programmes and initiatives to support them on their te reo Māori journey. There will be some 40-50 exhibitions from all over Aotearoa that showcase the range of quality te reo Māori rauemi, tools, programmes and initiatives to support their te reo Māori journey.
Further it’s an opportunity to hear from those in the field of te reo Māori revitalisation who will share their experiences and impart knowledge of using te reo Māori in our schools, homes and our communities. Guest speakers include Dr Ruakere Hond, Ani Piki-Tuari, Kingi Kiriona, Pania Papa and many more.
The event will also be a launching pad for a new online platform to host te reo Māori curriculum resources – Kauwhata Reo to support those learning in and through te reo Māori. Minister Davis will be showcasing Kauwhata Reo at Te Koko o Te Reo.
I look forward to you and your teams coming down to show support for Te Koko o te Reo and encourage you to promote the event within your teams and communities.
