Tamaki Int. - Maori Speech Winner 2008

This is Joseph's speech from the 2008 Whakokero finals. He was the winner of the competition and this is his speech. This was filmed by Victor on the day of the finals and he edited this as a final product. There are details on this blog relating to the structure and the Waiata sung in support of the speech at the end.

@ Mr Toa's class from China - thanks so much for your comments and questions our students are all preparing work to answer them all and will post them shortly.

@ pestream 2 - Joseph is Maori and was very proud to win the competition, although I think the Boys supporting with the Waiata could have had a little more calmness to them!
