Te Reo Resources
I 2017 Mb3 Ltd. supported the Ngā Pūmanawa e Waru Education Trust in building the Great Te Arawa Stories (GTAS) website. The Te Arawa Digital Storehouse - He Pātaka Pūrākau is an open access website which houses and makes accessible the Te Arawa stories that NPeW has collected. Our work in schools/kura has helped us identify the need for appropriate resources providing cultural context and local relevance, and it brings both well- and lesser-known Te Arawa specific stories to learners.
Stories range from the time of the arrival of the Arawa waka through to profiles of influential Te Arawa figures of yesteryear and today. The aim of this kaupapa is to build an inspiring space that stimulates learners to discover more about the world of Te Arawa and encourages them to consider their place in that world.
It has been an real honour working with NPeW and the team to build this website. Check it out and let us know what you think!
