Pū Kōrero Competition
Today the Year 6 tamariki watched a video of Sonny Ngatai a student from Hato Paora, present his speech at the 2014 Manukorero competition. The children took note of how he stood on stage, how he made his presence known, his use of language and humour to entice the crowd, and also how he used hand gestures to prove his point.

This years Pū Kōrero Competition is held at Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ngāti Kahungunu o Te Wairoa in the second week of term 3.
Ngā Pū Kōrero o Te Wairoa Competition
1. Ko te tino taonga o te Ao Māori.
2. Mahia te mahi hei painga mo te iwi.
3. He rite ahau ki a Māui.
1. Tell me I can’t and I will.
2. Everyone has the attributes and qualities of a leader.
3. We are the guardians of our environment.
The topics are really broad which allows the tamariki to interpret it in a way they know and understand. Every student in Room 1 has chosen their topic for speeches and written down ideas they want to talk about. Now the tamariki have to focus on how they are going to elaborate on their ideas and provide the audience with examples they will be familiar with.
