Ka ora te reo ki te korerotia Speak te reo so that it lives/survives
Kororareka Marae, in partnership with Te Wananga o Aeotearoa has been running Te Reo classes in Russell Kororareka to bring back the M?ori language.
In 2009 for the inaugral classes, 25 students completed Level 1 and Level 2 Te Ara Reo Maori. In 2010 they were joined with a second group starting Level 1 & 2, while they continued with Level 3 & 4. In 2011, approximately 20 students completed their Diploma level with the second class completing Level 3 & 4.
To keep up the level of Reo in this community, class members will be holding weekly wananga at Haratu every Thursday from 6.00 – 8.00 pm.
