Currently WestREAP run weekly Te Reo classes in both Greymouth and Hokitika.
Each term this year, Tutor Miriama Mason will run beginner levels 1 & 2 and an Intermediate course in Hokitika. Beginner Level 2 will be for those who have already completed beginner classes and are at an Improver stage and have confidence with basics. The Intermediate course is for those moving up from both beginners levels. Contact us to help you if you are unsure what level you need and to find out the evenings these groups run.
Miriama is Ngāi Tūhoe Iwi and married to Ngati Waewae's Te Rua Mason. In August of 2020 she participated in a Tamoko Wananga at Arahura Marae. See the video below.
Greymouth classes will cover both levels with two tutors each Wednesday evening with Tutors John De Goldi & Paula Iraia. John has held a variety of positions in his time at Greymouth High School beginning as Teacher in Charge of the Māori Studies Department. He is currently the Dean of Year 12 and the Careers Advisor. Paula Iraia is also our Kapa Haka tutor in Greymouth.
