Cook Islands Language Week

This year’s theme for ‘Epetoma o te reo Māori Kūki ‘Āirani’ – Cook Islands Language Week is ‘Ātuitui’ia au ki te Oneone o tōku ‘Ui Tupuna’ which means, connect me to the soil of my ancestors.

Our two Kura, Mission Heights Junior College and Mission Heights Primary School came together to open up our week with songs, prayers, and the Cook Island National Anthem.

A special thank you to Aunty Ianny and our Māori and Pasifika Council for decorating our reception beautifully and our parents/musicians for their wonderful music.
