Māori Language Day – September 14
Māori Language Day marks the date in 1972 when a petition calling for courses in Māori language and culture to be offered in New Zealand schools was presented at Parliament. That petition was an important step in the eventual foundation of the Māori Language Commission and to the recognition of Māori as an official language of New Zealand. The day grew to a week in 1975 with the inception of Māori Language Week. Later, celebrations of that week were moved from September to July in order to fit in better with the school year.
Māori Language Day has become an opportunity for people to encourage others to use reo Māori and to promote it. The Māori Language Week Awards which are held annually on this day, celebrate and encourage all those who get out there and give reo Māori a go.
The media, businesses, government and community organisations, schools and libraries are able to enter the awards by showing how they supported reo Māori during Māori Language Week.

Daffodil Day Community Breakfast 2012
The Student Council of Northland College is proud to be organising and hosting its fifth annual Daffodil Day Community Breakfast at the College Restaurant, “The Hubb”, on Friday morning (6am to 9am) 31st August, 2012 with all proceeds going to the Northland Cancer Society.
On offer is both a Continental and a fully cooked Breakfast at $15.00 a head, (or $5.00 for Primary School students and a Gold Coin donation for Pre-schoolers).
The Business Community both Local and Regional have traditionally generously supplied all food and non-food products necessary in making the Breakfast both filing and delicious. Last year over 30 organisations donated and over 180 breakfasts were sold, raising around $2800.00 for the Northland Cancer Society. Individuals donated their time and expertise and made it possible for all of us to have a wonderful time.
The Student Council warmly welcomes one and all to this scrumptious Breakfast and is certain that everyone will enjoy the meal, the convivial atmosphere (yes, even at 6am), the music and entertainment and the knowledge that they have contributed to raising funds for this worthy cause.
Kia Ora Whanau look who’s coming back to set your face on fire with laughter. Tautoko Fm has 2 double passes to give away from the 29th of this month – will keep you posted.
