Background

Te Kōhanga Reo established the new alumni foundation ‘He Manu Pīrere nō Te Kōhanga Reo’ as a future framework for sustained engagement between, and greater opportunities for graduates of Te Kōhanga Reo and their Whānau.

The term Pīrere is a literal translation for birds who leave or have already left their respective nest, which in this caserefers to graduates of Kōhanga Reo ‘language nest’. The second part of the name, ‘nō te Kōhanga Reo’ seeks toreaffirm the place from which these graduates took flight, the Kōhanga Reo that nurtured them, and as a means to encourage continued involvement with the Kaupapa itself.

He Manu Pīrere was launched in November 2017 in Hamilton during the ‘Nōku te reo, Nōku te ao’ Expo. It is part ofthe innovative framework acknowledging the many graduates of Kaupapa through the new Alumni foundation and the revised scholarships distribution programme.

No reira e ngā Manu Pīrere nō Te Kōhanga Reo, nau mai, hoki mai ki te Kaupapa.
