Kura Pō

Beginner and Intermediate Te Reo classes kick off again on Wednesday 8th March at Orākei Marae. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei members, partners and staff can attend for free. Any other students are welcome, however a $55 fee applies. There are several benefits and opportunities to learning and understanding te reo e.g.:
  • You’ll better comprehend what is being said on the marae at pōwhiri, hui or tangi.
  • Being able to speak te reo increases your employment opportunities.
  • You’ll be able to communicate with your tamariki, mokopuna or clients in te reo.
  • You’ll contribute to keeping te reo as a living everyday language in Aotearoa.
  • Research indicates that bilingual people have greater cognitive skills, and sharper brains.
So come and join up. Kura Pō classes are conducted in a supportive and friendly environment to help you learn at your pace. Two learner levels are available:
  1. Very beginners
  2. Intermediate
Save the date (Wednesday 8th March), sign up and email cjhawke@ngatiwhatuaorakei.com if you have any questions. This is a 9 week programme and runs from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm every Wednesday.
