Swimming classes in Te Reo offered in Pukekohe

The Franklin Pool and Leisure Centre in Pukekohe is offering te reo Māori swimming lessons for toddlers and young children.

The class was started as a way to bring more te reo Māori into the centre. Yesterday marked the start of classes, and the hope is that not just Māori but the wider community in Franklin will embrace te reo.

The centre came up with the idea to have Māori language swimming classes following discussions with staff and the community.

Hilarie Legg, who runs the centre, says it's a way of expanding the business and boosting inclusivity.
