NZME Celebrates Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

NZME Celebrates Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

10 September 2018 NZME is celebrating Māori Language Week, Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, across multiple platforms.
The Herald and NZME regional papers will change their titles into te reo Māori for the week and encourage readers to learn the language. Each day, there will be video, print and digital content encouraging the use of and teaching words in te reo.

Michael Boggs, CEO of NZME is proud to support Māori Language Week. “As one of our national languages, we are continuously doing our best to integrate the language into our company’s daily activities. We relish the chance to celebrate the language along with the rest of Aotearoa for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori.”

The organisation is embracing the CEO’s call to action wholeheartedly.

Michael Neilson, NZ Herald’s Māori issues reporter, will take on the challenge of how much he can develop his vocabulary in one week. He will try to use at least one Māori sentence in every conversationand will keep readers up to date on his progress.

The Whanganui Chronicle announced on Friday the inclusion of the ‘h’ into their titles, a change that took effect this week and will remain permanent.

ZM, Flava and The Hits are switching out their logos for the week to designs inspired by Māori artwork. There will be engaging video content from the brands across the week.

Internally, NZME employees will be marking Māori Language Week with intranet videos with tamariki (children) reading Māori myths and legends in te reo, and digiscreens and posters teaching the Māori equivalent of everyday words used in the workplace.

Earlier this year, The Herald updated their policy to include macrons both in print and online, and continues to look at ways to incorporate te reo.

Howard Davis: NZSO Perform Beethoven's Symphonies 1 & 9 This Weekend

When we consider how prodigious Beethoven's musical output was - including nine symphonies, five piano concertos, a violin concerto, various piano sonatas, sixteen string quartets, a mass, and an opera - it is a truly remarkable achievement that only twenty-four years separated the premieres of his first and final symphonies.

Max Rashbrooke Review: Mahler 7 - NZSO

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
