‘He taonga nga reo katao’
All languages should be treasured
Riversdale School teaches Te Reo to all children. It focuses on the basics of the Maori alphabet pronunciation, greetings and farewells, days and months, numbers, colours and place names in Aotearoa.
The school’s Kapa Haka leader is Kimberley Harper. She is supported by Whaea Carol Hayes. The group is passionate about learning Waiata and performing at assemblies, Polyfest, and other community events or occasions.
