New Te Reo Maori Website for Children Launched

Kua tae mai te paetukutuku o Mīharo !
E kī ana te paetukutuku i ngā korero me ngā tākaro i te hōtaka a Mīharo.
Nā reira, haere ki www.miharo.co.nz mo ngā mahi pārekareka…

Maori Television’s popular children’s show MIHARO has been boosted with the introduction of a new full immersion te reo Maori website, www.miharo.co.nz.

Launched by Auckland-based Tumanako Productions, the website provides an environment where tamariki can view stories from the television series and play games with a focus on Maori language revitalisation.

Designed with five to 10-year-olds in mind, audio prompts help younger emerging readers to navigate the site, while more advanced games encourage older tamariki to use their reading skills to complete activities.

The Miharo website can provide hours of fun and learning at home, and because it maintains a total immersion te reo Maori environment, it will also be a welcome online activity for Kohanga Reo, Kura Kaupapa and Rumaki Reo.

Those who choose to register on the site can track their progress, collecting stars as they complete each of the activities, and can earn special Miharo rewards by completing all sections of the site.

MIHARO currently screens weekdays at 5.00pm on the Te Reo Channel and a new series will start on Maori Television in 2013.

Visit the webisite at www.miharo.co.nz.
