Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Nga Mokopuna... #86

Te Kura Kaupapa Māori schools are New Zealand schools for children aged 3-14 who learn fully in the Māori language.

Kohanga reo is the pre-school equivalent - a Māori-language kindergarten. These pupils are from Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Nga Mokopuna in Seatoun, Wellington. They were on a school trip to Parliament and I met them coming past the New World Supermarket in Thorndon. They were sing away in Maori and obviously enjoying the day depite the wet foul weather. I asked the teacher if I could take a photo and in delightful school fashion she lined up all the smiling happy kids for a group photo. Thanks and I hope you all had a great day !!!

Are most of the kids studying Maori at school in N Z or is it Rare?
