The rūnaka wants to help whānau develop their tē reo Māori. Last year the rūnaka developed a te reo Māori strategy. This year, we want to put this strategy into action.

Before we can do this we want to know how whānau are with their te reo, their plans for developing their te reo and what the rūnaka can do to help whānau learn the language.

We have put together a short survey that will give us this information. The survey will start in late July and we intend to send it out to members by post and email. You will also be able to do the survey on the internet or by ringing the rūnaka 0800 234 8192. The survey is pretty short.

We look forward to hearing from you when the survey comes out. Kia ora. Nā Lynley McKay.
