Musicnet summary to 18th Sept 2020

Kia ora tātou

One week to go! That’s all I can say. 

The NZ Music commission made a great resource of a number of terms and phrases for using te reo in the music class room. Can’t wait to see them up around classrooms around the country. 

A resource for Chinese Language week was made. If you have other ideas about resources to make, there is funding available through the MENZA NeX grant
