It is crucial for Polish emigrant’s families who come to New Zealand, to ensure that their children can still communicate, speak and understand Polish language. It is not easy when you live overseas. At home usually one of the parents is Kiwi. At school and with friends it’s all English, and what about Polish?
Mrs. Magdalena James, a music teacher in Tauranga, initiated the first Polish school starting with her own 4 kids. Every Sunday playing piano, she begins her class with Polish language with songs and games.A high positive energy surrounds students from 3 to 12 years of age. All are friends and all try to speak Polish. My CMC massage lesson was very well received – all enjoyed massage colleagues and parents.
