This week is Māori Language Week in NZ. The theme for this year is 'Te kupu o te wiki' which translated means 'The word of the week'.
Te Kupu o te Wiki will introduce 50 new Mäori words to the nation over 50 weeks –
that’s one new word a week over a year. After 50 weeks, New Zealanders will have 50 new
Mäori words in their vocab.
Here at Pt England School we decided to create a slot in PENN (Pt England News Network) teaching students Te kupu o te wiki, The word of the week. So our students will learn a new word every week for the next 50+ weeks!
Take a look at this weeks kupu movie starring the talented tamariki of Class 12.
