Melville Intermediate - Online Collaboration Speaking Maori
Our students who will be at school again shortly (in three weeks) to begin the year have a task relating to the learning of their Mihi (greeting) in Maori. Once the students have learned this greeting we'd like to give them the opportunity to teach a Mihi to another classroom. This year at Melville Intermediate all of our Y7 Classrooms will be doing this online, so we'd like to get at least five classrooms that are interested. Room 8 did this last year with Allanhk's Class at Appleby School near Nelson, in the South Island of New Zealand and it was one of the highlights of the year (view it here!)! If your class would be interested you can leave a comment to this post and we'll get you sorted from Mr Webb.
