Ka rere ra re mihi nui ki Poucipeta Aotearoa mona kua whakaputa i enei panekuini hei whakaatu ki le ao he mana tonu to te reo Maori. I tenei, i Te Tau 0 Te Reo Maori, ka mihi r:i 1995 is a pivotal year for all New Zealanders - it is the year for celebrating and sharing one of our greatest national rteasures, the Maori language. New Zealand is the only country in the world where Maori language is spoken and wrirten and this alone makes it a potentially rich tool for distinguishing our country internarionally. Thousands of new Maori words are creared every year, which demonstrates the language's flexibility and its capability as a 21st century



These six stamps focus on the importance of the Maori language, and commemorate Maori Language Year. The Maori Language Commission has designated 1995 to be Te Tau 0 te Reo Maori (Maori Language Year) as part of continuing attempts to revive the language and teach it to the young. About 50,000 New Zealanders are fluent in Maori but the Commission is concerned that not enough young people are learning the language to safeguard its furure. As a result, there is now a strong emphasis on reaching ~~ . . . 80 ... "=0....

As an official language of New Zealand, the Maori language belongs to all of us. However with that ownership comes a responsibiliry to support and promote its use - and that is what He Taonga re Reo is all about.


the young. This is mosr visible in the kohanga reo (language nest) where pre-school children are immersed in the Maori language. Growing numbers of older students are also receiving their lessons

The Maori Language Stamp Issue produced by New Zealand Post is a major contribution to He Taonga Te Reo and promores the language in a creative and visual way. New Zealand Post has shown initiative and flair by choosing to work with Maori artists to produce this stamp issue for the year. It is a fine example of whar a partnership can achieve in support of Maori language.

in Maori, and state-funded Maori radio starions promote the language and culture. The Maori language came to New Zealand some 1000 years ago from what is now known as French Polynesia. The language developed independently after those long-ago migrations. Its vocabulary has many words common to a wide range

The glories of stained glass, an ancient craft that in genetal means windows made of coloured glass, feature on New Zealand Post's 1995 Christmas issue.

Ihildren'sWealth 'amps The 1995 Health Stamps come in a special shape - a ttiangle. It's just the second time in 140 years of New Zealand philatelic history that ttiangulat stamps have been issued. The fitSt was in the World Wat 11 yeat of 1943 when a young Princess Elizabeth, now Queen Elizabeth 11, and her sistet, Princess Margaret, featured on the health stamps. Because of their shape and subject, the 1943 stamps were exceptionally popular with collectors. Health stamps have been issued every year since 1929 and New Zealand Post Limited supports the Children's Health

Camps movement just as sttongly as did its ptedecessor, the New Zealand Post Office. From the beginning, the stamps have carried a small sutcharge and when they are sold the surcharge becomes in effect a donation by the purchaser. The sale of Health stamps now raises more than

$100,000 a year for the Children's Health Camps Board which operates seven permanent camps for needy children. A boy on a skateboard (45 cents postage, plus 5 cents surcharge) and a girl on a bike (80 cents postage, plus 5 cents surcharge) featute on the 1995 stamps.

Stained glass began appearing in the windows of Christian churches as early as the fifth century. Today such windows are part of the western world's religious and cultural heritage. The stained glass windows of the great cathedrals of Europe still exert a powerful spiritual influence on viewers.

Christchurch artist Ken Hall, who designed the seven stamps in this issue, found inspiration and material for his designs from church windows and the "arts and craft" movement from

the first quarter of this century. The 45 cent and 70 cent stamps depict the Annunciation - the Archangel Gabriel's announcement to Mary that she was to give birth to Jesus - as it appears on stained glass windows in St Mary's in Merivale. The 80 cent, $1.00, $1.50 and $1.80 values show details from a Nativity (the birth of Jesus) window at St Luke's Anglican Church, Chtistchurch. The 45-cent booklet stamp features the cheviot angel from St John the Evangelist Anglican Church in Cheviot, North Canterbury. The booklet stamp will be issued on 9 November 1995. Stamps in full colour were not available at Foe'" printing time.

Collecting is "in" and me objective of injecting fun into philately certainly seems ro have been achieved. The Club also continues to auracr interest from parents and teachers who appreciate the educational value in stamps. Stamp Month this year will be in Ocrober and centres

around "Famous New Zealanders". While Stamp Month is nor exclusively for children, it will be a very interesting issue for them to focus on.


This year we are running a nationwide poll, so that all New Zealanders can have the opportunity to vote for their choice of famous New Zealanders to appear on six stamps to be released later this year. The purpose of the poll is to recogmse ew Zealand's famous people, and also have the people of ew Zealand involved in deciding who should be featured on rhis special stamp issue. The poll will have ended when you receive this copy of Focus and the design of the stamps 'Jill be under way.

It's what you make it For some time I have been concemed at criticism of New Zealand Post's stamp issuing

poljey and row face value cost. It is a worldwide=: complaint that PostaJ Adminiscrarions are issuing tOO many Stamps, far tOO often. I would like to ~ this forum to attempt to answer dlo~ concerns. New Zealand POS( endavours to maintain a progr:unmc= that is both interesting and has imegril)'. Integrity is not a word we take lightly and we are absolutely adamant that our stamp issues meet postal needs, repr~nt accurate postal denominations for destination rates and reflect, wherever possible. the wishes of our coUectors (especially rhose imerested in thematic collecting). Meeting postal needs could obviously be satisfied with definitive stamps, but a combination of customer and community wants and company objectives result in a programme that consists of approximately 12-13 issues 1Xr year. with (Otal face value of our issues averaging $60.00 IXr annum. This will vary occasionally. if for enrnple a 520.00 definitive is produced. When it comes to miniature sheets, albums and first day covers, wc believe the collector has a choice. Either they purchase or they do nor.


Stamp numbers within this programme have increased. with the introduction of more bookJets into the programme. Thjs has led to more junior collectors finding stamps on parents' mail and greater revenue for charity collectors of bulk, used Stamps. While the numbers of stamps has increased, the actual cost of collecting has remained relatively constant.

Our face values are slightly higher than Australia and Canada, but less then Great Britain and USA. We believe that $60.00 per year makes collecting affordable (what else can you collect for $1.15 per week?) Our issue tOpics cater for the New Zealand collector who makes up the vast bulk of our customers, as well as the thematic collector. We endeavour ro cater to all demands and the programme is no exception. John Hotchner (unns Stamps News 26/9194) agreo with this approach: "Now, faichful readers know that I'm nor opposed to the issuance: oflots of stamps. A large and varied programme provides challenge and colour, knowledge and interest, and for those reasons contributes to the n..Iture of our hobby. To those who lament that mo~ Stamps and higher face values make the hobby tOO difficult and too expensive, my response is mat the hobby is what you choose to make it." I hope my explan.ation helps provide understanding of the fine line we tread between meeting customers' needs and wants, and overstepping the limits. You, the customers, att paramount to our business and we believe the produet5 and service: we provide, meet yow expecr:uions.. If they don't, please let us know and we will anempt to rectify it.
