International students at the University of Auckland will be getting a Te Reo Māori orientation as they head into ‘O Week’.

The university’s Māori student organisation, Ngā Tauira Māori, will be conducting te reo Māori tours for O Week. 

They will be encouraging students, no matter their ethnicity, to learn and utilise a Māori colloquial saying each week, for the whole year.

Our reporter Rukuwai Tipene-Allen speaks to students about the challenge and also poses the question: should other universities in New Zealand follow suit?
