Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

This past week we celebrated Te Wiki o te Reo Māori.
We had a week full of fun activities that ākonga worked through via a BINGO sheet. Activities included doing the EP- whakataetae Reo Māori, Quizzes, Disney Moana in Te Reo Māori, tongue twisters, and doing our whole school haka – #Reomoment on Thursday.
Kaiako have also joined in on the fun, collecting stickers when they’ve spoken in Te Reo during classes, to go into a draw to win some Miraka Kirīmi chocolate. We also enjoyed some parāoa parai (fried bread) for morning tea.

AIMS 2023

Last week, a group of Year 7 and 8 athletes travelled down to Tauranga for AIMS.
The netball team had an incredible week with many wins, finishing 26th out of 144 teams.
The basketball and hockey teams also had many wins throughout the week, showcasing the excellent training they have done throughout the year. Basketball finished the week in 29th place and hockey came 15th! Individual athletes also competed in Cross Country.
Well done to all the students who represented MHJC so well. Congratulations!
