08 Learning Languages

Learning languages other than English, provides a means of communicating with people from other cultures and exploring one’s own personal world. Languages and cultures play a key role in developing our personal, group, community, national and human identities.

Ko tou reo, ko toku reo,            Your voice and my voice

Te tuakiri tangata.                     are expressions of identity.

Currently, all our students have the opportunity to learn te reo in context. Our Year 7 and 8 are currently learning Mandarin from a teacher assistant provided through the Confucius Institute.
