Nga mihi nui ki a koutou katoa
Warm Greetings to you all
Here at Oropi our children learn two second languages, Māori and Mandarin. Our language program is a culmination of leading pedagogy and homegrown contexts. It is a dynamic program that will continue to evolve and develop with our learners needs.
The learner’s ability to communicate is at the centre of our program with two supporting strands of developing linguistic and cultural awareness to achieve communicative competence.
Culturally our children experience a wide range of Maori and Mandarin customs, protocols, arts, traditions, festivities and perspectives. This is a rich tapestry of life experiences for any child to be leaving primary school with.
