Mauri Reo, Mauri Ora

  • In partnership with Māori Television, we have now launched the Mauri Reo, Mauri Ora Kōanga 2021 series to ensure Māori language learning can continue anywhere, anytime for tamariki during and after Alert Level 4.
  • The channel is full of new and engaging content, while also taking the chance to revisit some of the more popular lessons of the show enjoyed by tamariki in the comfort and safety of their bubbles.
  • Every episode is presented by Māori language teachers and exponents with support from expert educationalists. Tamariki are encouraged through play, art, song and imagination to continue learning whether they are in a classroom, at home or in isolation.
  • Mauri Reo, Mauri Ora Kōanga 2021 screens on Te Reo channel every weekday from 9am to 12pm beginning today. Programmes will also be available online on the Māori TV website and on the Māori+ app.
  • The lesson schedule for the Mauri Reo, Mauri Ora Kōanga series can be found.

Information has also been updated about Vaccines;

Vaccine FAQs (including information for 12 to 15-year-olds)

The vaccine FAQ link has been restored and here is the attached document. This information has been provided by the Government to support any questions about vaccinations for 12 to 15-year-olds.

The Government know that this is a very difficult time for many families and they wanted us to share this with you.
