A week of activities for Maori Language Week

Our Primary school students at ACG Sunderland celebrated Maori Language Week early last week.

The week of activities including flax weaving, ti rakau sticks, learning Maori legends and kite making. It culminated with a visit from Park Ranger Jason Duff, who works in the local Cascade Kauri regional park. He taught students traditional Maori uses for objects from the forest.

“For our ancestors, the shops were the forest, the ocean and the rivers,” he told them. He brought with him objects such as a kite kumara for collecting kumara and shellfish, traditional fern peko peko and the tooth of a whale.
