NZSL Challenges

This year’s theme is “An Aotearoa Where Anyone Can Sign Anywhere” – so why not have some fun with NZSL in the workplace!

We have three fun activities to choose from that will help hone your NZSL skills…

Seven Minutes of Signing

Come together over morning tea with your team, grab our
NZSL posters with pictures demonstrating how to sign
common phrases, and spend just 7 minutes giving NZSL a go!
It will be loads of fun and a great team-building exercise.

Learn 7 Signs

Can you learn seven new signs this NZSL Week? That’s only
one per day! Put our NZSL demonstration posters up around
the break rooms and practice over morning tea or lunch.

Sign a Song

Give Six60’s Pepeha song a try in NZSL! This is our toughest
challenge, but if you’re familiar with NZSL, this could be your
next step! We have full instructions on our website
underneath “NZSL Challenges”. Head to to get

Be sure to upload videos and photos of yourself doing the challenges, tag @DeafAotearoa and use the hashtags #NZSLWeek24 and #NZSLWeekChallenge.

We can’t wait to see you giving NZSL a try!
