Protecting the natural environment is a priority for Aucklanders and the Eastern Days Songbird Project is helping residents encourage the return of native birds to their backyards, thanks to funding from the local board and the council's natural environment targeted rate. The project is proving so popular, residents outside of the project area are taking up the idea.
Te Pōkaitahi Reo
Meet Parminder Singh (Punjabi) who shares his journey with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi:
“Studying in the Pōkaitahi Reo programme has allowed me to develop a totally beautiful and unique relationship with Māori communities in Auckland. The learning has helped my work to bridge gaps between Māori and others in our multicultural communities. When I look back, I feel really proud. It’s a great feeling when I speak te reo Māori. It’s a privilege.”
