Private teacher training establishment the New Zealand Tertiary College has developed a teaching and learning guide to help early childhood practitioners incorporate te reo Maori into their centres.

Chief executive Selena Fox says it’s part of the college’s commitment to bilingualism and biculturalism.

The 48 page guide draws on its successful Maori language learning resource - Te Reo Maori: He taonga mo a tatou mokopuna.

Ms Fox says it offers fresh ideas for early childhood teachers to weave te reo Maori and the country’s bicultural heritage into children’s everyday learning in authentic ways.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
