Make te reo welcome at work and in the community

ACE Aotearoa are excited to let you know that we are now able to offer a Te Reo for ACE workshop.

This workshop will be held this year in Auckland, Taupō, Wellington, Blenheim and Invercargill, but please let us know if you have local interest in your area.

This workshop is an opportunity for all staff and volunteers in the ACE sector to attend a reo Māori workshop designed as a beginner level introduction to learning basic Te Reo Māori - first steps to ensuring that we can learn and be comfortable using some level of reo Māori correctly with our colleagues, learners, communities, networks, and, over time, that we increase the use of reo Māori in our everyday work, teaching practices and programmes.

The workshop presenter, Te Ataahia Hurihanganui (Te Arawa, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Ira, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rangitāne), will help you learn about pronunciation strategies and techniques; common greetings; simple introductions (of self); well-known dialects; a common karakia; a waiata relevant to the sector; as well as Te Reo terms and concepts used in education.
