Maori Language Week is on it's way

As some of you may be aware, Maori Language week isn't too far away.

We've been very lucky to have some students from Melville Intermediate offer to teach us (thanks Hayze and Mackenzie, we think you're awesome!!)  Their blog comes up on the first page on Google when you search 'Maori mihi' (which is a special Maori greeting, giving info of where your ancestors are from) so they're obviously very knowledgeable - nothing like learning from the experts.

LH3, please have a go at loading on all the Maori words you're already familiar with (and the English version of it) below - I'm interested to see how we get on!

Also, feel free to use this space to communicate with Hayze, Mackenzie and any other Melville Int. students in the comments section.

These are some Maori words/phrases we know (Maori = English)... at

    Thank you so much for your kind words, the students who created the videos Hayze and Mackenzie are no longer students of Melville Intermediate, they have both moved on, however we are doing Maori language tutoring again this year and would love to collaborate with you on this. Our tutor for 2013 from Room Five, Reitu, is very, very excited and will be in touch shortly. Thanks so much for your comments and well be in touch.
    Mr Webb and Room Five, Melville Intermediate, Hamilton, Waikato.
