Senior students get help with Mihi's

Special Visitors

We had Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu Iwi Advisor in Professional Learning & Development, Justin Tipa and University of Canterbury Learning Facilitator in Maori Medium, Piripi Prendergast visiting to help with Mihis and tell us some fabulous stories.  Such an honour to have both these fluent Maori speakers travel from Christchurch just for us.   

Feedback from Justin Tipa after Ms Sullivan thanked him on behalf of Modern Minds:

Kia ora Caron

Not a problem it was absolutely our pleasure and we are looking forward to the next chance we have to visit, hopefully this year!!

It was awesome to see the children so engaged and hungry for things Māori,  a real credit to yourself and the team.
