We are pleased to announce that Silverdale Playcentre has reopened in Term 2, 2018 as we pilot a new initiative, a full immersion session at Silverdale. Te Puna Reo Māori O Whānau Ngātahi, Ki Te Weiti.
North Shore Playcentre Association are pleased to be working in conjunction with Kereama Nathan and Te Herenga Waka o Orewa Marae to pilot this full immersion reo session at Silverdale Playcentre. Te Puna Reo at Silverdale Playcentre. Both parties have been able to work together to fulfil mutual aspirations and acknowledge that this pilot takes us into uncharted waters which we will navigate together with open and honest lines of communication.
We are currently taking enrolments and setting up of sessions, which will be a Playcentre session but in Te Reo Maori. The initiative will be supported operationally by the Regional Office. Kereama Nathan has been NSPAs Honorary Kaumatua for many years, it is fabulous to have his support and to come together with Te Herenga o Orewa on this exciting pilot programme.
