Mahurangi East
​Ngā Pīwakawaka o Mahurangi Te Reo Support Rōpū

More experienced whānau in our rohe often feel isolated when it comes to being able to share their reo, needing to 'use it, not lose it', while others are wanting to know more and are first time learners. Our rōpū builds whānaungatanga and offers support for all. Ako atu, ako mai.

​Waiata Mai Tamariki Mā - Māori songs for children

Bring your whānau to the library and join Whaea Tina and Whaea Jo for children's waiata, kanikani and kōrero - songs, dance, and stories. It's the perfect opportunity to learn a little te reo Māori for yourselves too!
