Tongan Language Week 2016

New Zealand is celebrating Tongan Language Week / Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e Lea Faka-Tonga from 4-10th September 2016. 

The theme of the week is ‘Fakakoloa ‘a Aotearoa ‘aki ‘a e Loto’i Tonga’ — Enriching Aotearoa with the Tongan Spirit.

Embracing Pacific languages in education is important for the linguistic and cultural identity of New Zealand and additionally puts children a step ahead when learning other world languages.

The Ministry has created a fantastically valuable education resource in partnership with Te Papa Tongarewa. View here.

All materials and information relating to the week week can be found on the Tongan Language Week website.
