Cook Islands Language Week/Te epetoma o te reo Māori Kuki Airani


Kia Orana from the students of Pt England School. The week past we had the opportunity to practice using the Cook Islands language! In team 5 we sang himene in Māori Kūki ’Āirani and used some basic phrases to start us off each day.

This year's theme is`Ei rāvenga nāku i te tuatua i tōku reo Māori Kūki ’Āirani ka anoano au i te turuturu ā tōku ngutu`are tangata `ē te matakeinanga. An encouraging home and community environment is what I need to build my love and my confidence to speak my reo Māori Kūki ’Āirani.'


We are so very proud of our year 7 & 8 students who took the lead in preparing this beautiful range of items. They gave up every lunch time to practice together for our Friday school assembly. A huge thank you to Mrs Lagitupu and Roimata's mum, Puna, who helped all week long.  You are awesome!


Watch and find out for yourself how proud our students are of the Cook Island culture and language. Meitaki Maata tamariki
