Kuki Airani National Anthem 'Te Atua Mou E'


Tangi Ke Parents and Caregivers of Room 2, 



This week we have been singing the lyrics to the Cook Islands National Anthem. Please encourage our tamariki to learn the words during this special Cook Islands Language week. Pakau, Room 2. 




Te Atua mou ē

Ko koe rāi te pū
O te pā 'enua ē
'Akarongo mai
I tō mātou nei reo
Tē kāpiki atu nei
Pāruru mai
I a mātou nei
'Omai te korona mou
Kia ngāteitei
Kia vai rāi te aro'a
O te pā 'enua ē.





Meitaki Maata, 
Miss Tumutoa. 

What is Meitaki?


Meitaki is one of the three core values of Kia Orana.

Meitaki means everything is good, well, OK and thank you all in one. Each of our islands have their own extension of Meitaki, always to emphasise the large amount of good being referred to. Meitaki Maata means - Thank you very much. Meitaki also refers to how we are feeling if we are feeling good. It is how we share how happy we feel. Meitaki is the sound of our Cook Islands Spirit shinning.
