Nga Manu Korero
Nga Manu Korero is regarded as the most significant event on the Maori education calendar for nurturing the oratory skills and providing the stage for young people to express their views and to lay down their challenges to an admiring and critical audience of peers, parents, whanau and judges.
The speech contests are intended to encourage the development of skills and confidence of Maori students in spoken English and te reo Māori. All secondary schools are invited to participate in this wonderful event, noting that the Maori section is open to all students as part of a strategy to support everyone to learn and to speak in te reo Maori.
