WellyED: Classrooms Across Wellington – Day 10

Today’s blogpost comes from Te Ara Whanui Kura Kaupapa Maori. 

Nō te tau 1965 whakarewahia ai te whakataetae nei, ā, itōna tīmatanga, i tapaina ki te ingoa ‘The Korimako Contest’. He huihuinga hei whakamānawa i te toki mātauranga nō Ngāti Maniapoto, a Tākuta Pei Te Hurinui Jones i mate i te tau 1976.

He karapirenga whakahirahira tēnei e akiaki nei i ngā tauira Māori i roto i ngā Kura Tuarua o Te Motu kia māia te kōrero i roto i te reo Māori, Pākeha hoki.

Ia tau ka waihangahia he kaupapa i roto i ngā wāhanga e whā. Mā konei e taea ai e ngā tauira te kōwhiri i tētahi kaupapa e ngākaunui ana ki a rātau. Ko ngā wāhanga ko junior English, junior Māori, senior English, senior Māori hoki.

I tēnei tau, ka tū te whakataetae­ā­motu ki roto o Te Whanganui­a­Tara ki Otaki, ki Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua mai i te 21 ki te 24 o Mahuru.

Koinei te tau tua toru kua tau atu he kaikōrero mai tō mātou kura o Te Ara Whānui Kura Kaupapa Māori O Ngā Kohanga Reo O Te Awakairangi ki ngā whakataetae ā motu mō Ngā Manu Kōrero.

blog2Kātahi anō ngā whakataetae ka oti, nā kua whakatau, i riro ia Kaanihi Butler­Hare te taonga mō te Rāwhiti Ihaka (Junior Māori), arā te toa whakaihu waka mō te reo māori ki te taha teina. Ko Kaanihi tētahi ō ngā tauira nō tō mātou kura, nānā anō tōna kōrero i whakarite. Heoi, ka tika me mihi ki tōna Whānau, Hapū, Iwi, Kura, Hāpori, rātou katoa i āta, poipoi, i āta akiaki i te tama nei. Mīharo katoa te whānau ki tēnei o ngā hōnore, kei whea mai e tama!blog

Ka tika me mutu ki ēnei kōrero āu: “Ko te Manu e kai ana i te miro, nōnā te ngāhere, Ko te Manu e kai ana i te ngāhere, nōnā te ao.”
