School community Te Reo course now available!

Updated: May 20, 2021

We are excited to announce our new Te Reo Māori courses at Island Bay School run by our very own staff. During this 9 week programme you will learn:

  • Basic Te Reo Māori

  • Pronunciation

  • A personalised mihi and karakia appropriate for multiple occasions

  • Tikanga of pōwhiri Māori values and principles

Classes are taught at school every Thursday - starting on 27 May from 3.30 pm - 4.30 pm, for 9 weeks in The Learning Hub.


Offered free of charge to families within our school community, the only prerequisite is you need to be keen and every family must have one adult learning with them.


We would also appreciate you committing to a full term so that you and your child are able to build on your knowledge week by week.


This is a great opportunity to share in a learning experience with your child/ren.
