Room 18's Mihimihi

A mihimihi is a short greeting to introduce our self to other people in te reo Maori.
It is an important part of the process of meeting people for the first time.
Room 18's mihimihi includes where we come from, our nationality (iwi), our environment and landmarks: mountain (maunga) and river (awa), school and our name.
We have been learning to write, read and speak our own mihimihi in te reo Maori.
Enjoy listening to our mihimihi and learning about all of us.


  1. Tino pai rawa Room 18! We are Ms Williams' class from North Carolina. We are learning to speak a little Maori right now, but we are no where near as good as you are!

    Thank you for visiting our blog. We loved reading your blog. We think you are very lucky to have a classroom makeover. Our school is very old and all made of brick. We would love to have the bright and colorful classrooms that you have in NZ.

    We look forward to reading more of your blog and we hope to hear from you again at our blog <3

  2. You're Mihmihis are fabulous.
