Staff at BLENNZ Homai and BLENNZ Auckland South celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori with kai, te reo Māori, manaakitanga and whanaungatanga. This year’s theme is ākina te reo.
Let’s show our support by using te reo Māori to inspire and cheer each other on. There will be two more breakfast gatherings this week. Nau mai!
Kia kaha e hoa mā!
It is National Volunteer Week and this is always a great opportunity for everyone at BLENNZ to say a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers around the country.
The work and support you provide within our network is essential to BLENNZ. You are an integral part of the services we provide to ākonga and whānau and help to ensure that we can provide inclusive learning experiences to all.
