Te Kohanga ote whenua hou has started the “tamariki Kohanga” program for Primary school aged tamariki. Lessons cover kapahaka, te reo, toi mahi and taonga takaro, and tamariki learn only one thing per lesson area per week! The focus is on fun, enjoyment and whakawhanaungatanga for our tamariki. Check out our photos of the first three classes.
Tamariki learned taonga takaro of putahi; poi toa and Mu torere. Nga tane learned the haka ‘ka mate’ whilst nga kotiro have been practising the poi! Reo kupu includes, whanau; kia ora and tena koe/korua/koutou. Tamariki have also begun developing a koru for their tshirts! Join us every Saturday from 9.30am for tamariki Kohanga. Cost is $2 per child and kai to share (healthy food please!).
