This week is Te Reo Lauguage week.The theme of Maori language week is," Arohatia Te Reo". Some of us did Maori posters to put in a competition. We have been singing Maori songs[Waiata]. They are "Pu Kupu Maori,"" Purerehua,"," Nga Tae O Nga Putiputi" and "Aoaraki.E". Mrs Sweney said, "He aha tenei?" [What is this?] Then we had to answer, in a sentence , in Maori!
Every morning we have to say to Mrs Sweney, how we feel in Maori. This one of our answers, " Kei te pai ahau whaea Sweney." Also every morning we have a quiz in Maori. What we have to do is match the English words with the Maori words.
I feel so sorry for the Margaret Mayhe family for what has happened. R.I.P. You were one of the best writers I knew. I loved" A lion in the Meadow".
