New Website to Inspire Teaching and Learning of Te Reo Māori

A new website from the Ministry of Education features images from Te Papa’s collection. He Reo Kōmanawa: Images to Inspire Teaching and Learning Te Reo Māori is a digital resource for Te Reo Māori teachers and learners. The website includes a framework for designing sequences of teaching and learning tasks for teachers. Learners get to find out about the fabulous taonga in our collection.

This website is the result of a lot of hard work from both the Ministry and Te Papa’s Education Team and we’re all really happy that it’s up in time for Matariki.

Have a look around! Here’s an image of one of the taonga featured in the resources.

    Does the school have an emergency plan for local and national emergencies ?

      Hi Gefen,
      Te Papa isn’t a school but as a museum we do have an evacuation plan for emergencies. We had a surprise test evacuation a few weeks ago. It was a bit chilly but good practice for all staff. The front of house staff are great at making sure all of our visitors evacuate the building safely. We also have an emergency plan for local and national emergencies.
