Te ‘Epetoma o te reo Māori Kūki Āirani was celebrated at Central Kids Kindergarten Clyde Street, Tokoroa through movement, language and fun!
 
Jamie went along to a physical activity modelling session with the children and staff of Clyde Street and played all their favourite games with a Cook Island twist. We used the scarves and played games using the Cook Island words for the different colours; auīka – blue, muramura – red, matie – green, rengarenga – yellow, vare’au - purple and mākara – orange.

We tried simple instructions such as “mou rima” or hold hands, “uri kakau, uri kaui” or turn right, turn left, “ki runga, ki raro” or up, down. We had races, did some group games, jumped over the rope and wiggled under it.
 
We had such a great time incorporating our Pacific language into our modelling session that the staff at Clyde Street have endeavoured to use Te Reo Māori Kūki Āirani more. Meitaki Clyde Street!
