  • Totally agree te reo must be taught in all nz schools so that everyone in nz can speak the national and only indigenous language of this country. Everywhere else in the world aside from Australia which is worse than nz can speak a minimum of 2/3 languages. We need to step up and honour the treaty.

We request that the House of Representatives support all children in Aotearoa New Zealand learning te reo Māori in their school

He tono tā mātou, me kaha tautoko e te Whare Pāremata ko te reo Māori me ōna tini tikanga hei kaupapa matua i ngā kura katoa o Aotearoa nei

The Green Party supports universal te reo Māori in all public schools.  We have a responsibility to ensure that our indigenous language thrives in Aotearoa, and introducing all children to it at school is the best way to make that happen.  Learning a second language has proven benefits for children, as does Māori students being immersed in their own culture. Learning a language is also a fantastic way to respect, value and connect with a culture that isn’t your own.
