E ngā Tauira o ō mātou Kareti, ko te tekau mā whā ki te rua tekau o Mahuru, ngā rā mō Te Wiki o te Reo Māori i tēnei tau!
For those unsure about the meaning of the sentence above, it’s in te reo Māori and translated means: To the Fellows of our College, the 14-20 September are the days for Māori Language Week this year!
RANZCO celebrates Māori Language Week (Te Wiki o te Reo Māori), an annual event held since 1975. It is the time of year Aotearoa, New Zealand celebrates the Māori language. It is also the anniversary of the Māori language petition being presented to the New Zealand parliament on 14 September 1972.
Māori Language Week is an opportunity to raise awareness and commitment for continued te reo Māori revitalization, learning, and use.
