Kia ora koutou katoa,
TO DO – Whanau that are interested in sending their children to Kohanga Reo please contact me ASAP to discuss enrolment needs.
Once we have 10 TAMARIKI CONFIRMED then classes can start. We have a teacher, we have a facility so all we need now are the tamariki.
Classes will be Thursdays & Fridays from 9-12 and will be run from the Brightstars Early Learning Childhood Centre (ELCC) in Macquarie Fields. The initial program will be 10 weeks long with the view to continuing indefinitely
TO DO – If you are interested in volunteering to help this kaupapa please contact me. Volunteering could be helping out in the class environment, or maybe helping preparation of teaching resources, or helping with the administration then we would love your help
TO DO – If you know of other Kohanga Reo groups in Sydney please forward their contact details to me so I make contact with these groups
– The overview of the teaching program is in the process of being reviewed and signed off
– We have made contact with Te Kohanga Reo National Trust back home in New Zealand. Their response was positive and are they are assisting our efforts here in Sydney
– We have made contact with another key provider of Maori language lessons (adult classes) here in the Macarthur Region. They have indicated that they are happy to support our kaupapa as much as possible, how ever they can
– We will be interviewed on Maori community radio (88.9 FM) on Saturday 24th August at 7:30am. This is to raise awareness of the initiative to start a Kohanga Reo here in the Macarthur region of Sydney and another key initiative I am involved in – Ririki (a Maori parenting program)
Thank you to everyone for the ongoing support & guidance.
