Te Reo Māori with Whaea Saf

Kia ora! Today, we had our first Te Reo Māori lesson of 2017 with Whaea Saf!

This year, we are focusing on 'Responsibility' - Kaitīakitanga i nga wā kātoa. With Whaea Saf, we learned the meaning of 'Kaitīakitanga.'

Kai = food/ feed
Tiaki = care

The word Kaitīakitanga means 'guardianship' or guardians of everything. 

We are going to continue to learn more about the meaning of the saying: 'Kaitīakitanga i nga wā kātoa' throughout the term.

This links nicely with our cluster-wide inquiry: Te Taiao o Tāmaki - The environment of Tāmaki. We can show Kaitīakitanga in many ways by looking after the beautiful environment in which we live.
