Ko te reo kia tika, ko te reo kia rere, ko te reo kia Maaori

Our primary objective is to promote Te Reo Maaori me ona Tikanga with a Tainui perspective through innovative programming.

There is an emphasis on right shifting people along the language continuum and we encourage everyone with language skills no matter how little, to use the language all day every day.
