Melville Intermediate - Teaching Maori Using Skype

Today we had a session with students from Waiuku Primary School. Hayze and Mackenzie from Room Eight spoke to Waiuku during Maori Language Week, and worked with the students to help them with their Mihi (traditional Maori Greeting). They were keen to talk with us again and show us how they had improved - and wow what an improvement they'd made since last time. They had obviously been doing a huge amount of practise. This video shows some highlights from that session.


  1. Thank you SO much to our fabulous Mihi tutors!

    You can tell just how hard the students ALL worked to get their mihi just right for our big presentation to parents. We had 15 parents turn up and everyone in Room 5 tried really hard.

    I'm glad you can see our improvements, thank you for being part of our learning!

  2. We wrote about our wonderful tutors here:

    Thanks again :)

  3. Dear Room 8,

    We watched the video this morning. Lots of us laughed as it was funny seeing ourselves.
    Than you for all your help, we liked learning our Mihi with you.
