    Kia ora koutou,

    Ki ahau nei ko te raruraru mo nga akonga o nga akomanga reo rua ko te mana tonu o te reo Pakeha i roto i ēra momo akomanga. He pai ake mēna mai i to ratou timatanga i te kura tuatahi ki te mutunga o te Tau 6 ko te reo matua ko te reo Māori.

    It is my belief that in bi-lingual situations, even within Kura Kaupapa, there is a general belief that students should begin their transition to reading and writing in English by Year 4.  From my experience, I think it is crucial that students are not transitioned until Year 7 when their cognitive ability and level of maturity is ready to make that transition and to do so smoothly.  If they transition at Year 7 they generally surpass their peers in acquiring both English and Māori language skills.

    Noho ora mai.
