This year EBIS is hosting the Wellington region Pasifika Festival.
This should be a great day, so please stop in view what Wellington schools have on offer.
As hosts the rest of the school will be off school grounds, partaking in team activities so that other Wellington schools have space to rehearse.
On Thursday all learning will focus on China and the Chinese culture. Xiaosheng, our Mandarin teacher, has worked hard to create a very fun and interactive program. Each class will do three activities. The day will end with an assembly celebrating the Chinese culture.
Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori runs from the 9th to the 15th of September
Why a week? Why not a year? Why not a decade? A century?
Because New Zealand is revitalising the Māori language and a part of that is celebration of our success and promoting te reo Māori. Māori language week is an opportunity for concentrated celebration, promotion and encouragement. And every minute of every hour of every day is a Māori language minute – we can choose to use te reo – every time we do, even just a ‘Kia ora!’ contributes to revitalisation.
