Te Pōkaitahi Reo
KIA ORA! Do you want to learn Te Reo Māori, improve your competence in Māori conversations and enhance your knowledge of Tikanga and Mātauranga?
Our Te Pōkaitahi Reo certificates are fee free and graduates will obtain an understanding and awareness of te reo that can be used amongst whānau and in employment.
These programmes provide a pathway to develop skills and knowledge to protect, maintain and enrich mātauranga taonga tuku iho for current and future generations from beginners to more advanced levels.
If you’d like to study with us locally in Whakatāne, we’d love to hear from you!
GeoNet has confirmed Bay of Plenty volcano White Island is erupting.
People living in or near the affected ashfall areas should:
-Consider staying indoors. Volcanic ash could be a health hazard, especially if you suffer from breathing difficulties
-When indoors, close all windows and doors to limit the entry of volcanic ash
-If caught in volcanic ashfalls: Wear a dust mask or use a cloth handkerchief over your nose and mouth; protect your eyes by wearing goggles. Wear eyeglasses, NOT contact lenses as fine ash will get under the lens
-Listen to the radio and/or TV for further assessment and updates
-Effects of a volcanic eruption can be experienced many kilometres from a volcano
