Ko tōu reo, ko tōku reo,te tuakiri tangata.
Tīhei uriuri, tīhei nakonako.
Your voice and my voice are expressions of identity.
May our descendants live on and our hopes be fulfilled.
Te Reo/Māori is integrated into all areas of the curriculum. The staff at Whangaparaoa School are continually receiving professional development to help them build on their knowledge and skills in this area. All staff members use Te Reo on a daily basis in their classrooms and are continually learning new vocabulary and phrases which they are able to pass onto the tamariki.
