Notices from Health Promotion Forum: September 2018

Off the back of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

In celebration of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori we featured on our facebook page last week the report by Tomairangi Chaffey-Aupouri written in Te Reo Māori about her experience on the CoA shortcourse.

We have published extracts from the report on our website - in observance of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori.

“I only hope that by posting this report that it inspires other Maori to follow their dreams and strive to keep our Maori language alive and well,” says Tomairangi.
