Tēnā tātou katoa, he aha koia ngā āhuatanga rangahau āku? Ko te reo Māori pea me ōna whakanikoniko. Ko te whānau kīpeha tērā: Ko Huahuatau, ko Kupu Whakarite, ko Kīwaha. Ko te tuhia o ngā pukapuka reo Māori mā ngā tamariki. Ko Hewa, ko Te Poikoiora, ko RT3 ērā. Ko te tuhinga auaha, ko te reo auaha. Me ētehi anō kaupapa e kaingākautia ana: te pukapuka, te kōmeke, te toi.
