OVER 30 GRADUATES OF KŌHANGA REO AWARDED SCHOLARSHIPS
Over 30 Kōhanga Reo scholarships were awarded at a ceremony held in Wellington today. The scholarships will assist students studying at a Doctorate PhD level, at undergraduate and Masters level, all of whom are former graduates of Kōhanga Reo.
Hona Black of Ngāi Tūhoe, Te Whānau a Apanui and Tūwharetoa was the recipient of the top award, the Sir James Henare Scholarship valued at $10,000. The Kōhanga Reo graduate is studying towards a PhD degree. The topic for his thesis looks at how the Māori language is being taught and learned in schools and how there is merit in making mistakes and good from being wrong.
20 graduates will also receive assistance toward their studies that includes all academic programs up to the level of a bachelor's degree.
Procter says, "the main objective of today is for our graduates to return to the Kohanga Reo movement.".....
