An eight-week introductory course in Maori language and customs is being offered by Risingholme Community Centre in three different locations. This evening course (6.30 – 8.30 pm) has a strong focus on speaking and understanding spoken Te Reo Maori. It is aimed at providing beginners with knowledge of basic greetings to more complex sentences. The class will also provide an opportunity for the more advanced to support the beginners and practice and increase their skill in speaking, listening and understanding. Waiata (songs), tikanga (culture), karakia (prayers) and mihi (introductions) will be covered together with oral/aural and reading/writing skills. The course starts on Tuesday 16 May at Christchurch Girls’ High; Wednesday 17 May at Riccarton High School or Thursday 18 May at Shirley Boys’ High School.
