Te Wiki o Te Reo - Maori Language Week - July 2008

2008 celebration of Te Wiki o Te Reo was marked with a gathering at Maunga Hohepa - Mt St Joseph in Whanganui of Sisters and Staff members of the various facilities.
Kaumatua Morvin Simon with Sister Makareta gave valuable input into the translations and pronunciation of the new signage around Maunga Hohepa.  In particular the use of the word manaaki – care, respect, hospitality, was discussed, and the implications of its use for each facility highlighted.
