Message from Deb - Celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, Māori Language Week

We got off to a great start on Monday with Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori | Māori language moment.


All our children joined the nearly one million people speaking, singing and celebrating te reo at 12pm on Monday, and it was a great opportunity for us to encourage our children to use te Reo in their everyday lives.



How are you feeling today? Thanks to Maria's daughter Kimi Moana for this cool graphic!













I'd like to leave you with this whakatauki or proverb:

Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei

Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain


This whakatauki is about aiming high or for what is truly valuable, but it's real message is to be persistent and don't let obstacles stop you from reaching your goal.


It really strikes a chord for me, as it is exactly this resilience and persistence that we want to grow in your children during their time with us, so that no matter where their path takes them, they will find their treasure.
