What the staff read during the Christmas holidays?

Staff Christmas Reading


Te Reo Māori

As part of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, Coastal Taranaki School has immersed itself in Māori art, language and waiata. This year, a Māori language expert was appointed for Coastal Taranaki School, which has sparked interest in Te Reo throughout the school and has received amazing feedback from the community. Listen to Whaea Shirleen Ngawhare as she reads The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle in Te Reo Māori.
