Mō Kia Māia te Whai

Tūhuratia te ao mīharo o ngā pukapuka, ki tua atu hoki i roto i tēnei kaupapa Kia Māia te Whai - tā tātou kaupapa pānui pukapuka kore utu mō te raumati, mā ngā tamariki 5-12 te pakeke.

Tūhono mai i a tātou e tūhura haere ana i ngā takoha whakamīharo kei ngā pātaka kōrero. Whakamātautau koe i a koe anō, kia kaha te pānui, kia māia te whai!

Hei whakamārama:

Ko ngā whāinga kākāriki me te kupu 'māmā' ngā whāinga māmā rawa hei whakatutuki.

Me ngana koe ki te pānui i ia rā!

Kaua e wareware ki te tuari i tō haerenga, tukua tētahi whakaahua ki te Pātū Whakanui, tonoa rānei tētahi arotake pukapuka.
