Poll: Should the NZ Wars be made compulsory?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Kia ora neighbours,

Te reo is in the spotlight and is being celebrated throughout the country as part of Māori Language Week. This week, Barbershop in Blue returned with a waiata, parents shared stories about raising children as bilingual, Stuff became Puna, and the future of te reo in NZ was debated.

But one debate is still ramping up - should the New Zealand Wars become a compulsory part of the curriculum? What do you think? Take part in our poll below!
