A Pedagogy of Relationships
We are offering this unique PD opportunity with a focus on cultural responsiveness. PD will be delivered in English. The day will be held in our total immersion Māori language educational setting where our kōhanga reo and kura kaupapa Māori are situated under one roof (infants to Y13).
The morning session is a presentation on Te Tiriti o Waitangi - facts about the Treaty and it’s relevance to contemporary educational contexts and settings. Veronica Tawhai and Te Rina Warren, Massey University lecturers with particular expertise in indigenous studies and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, will facilitate this part of the day.
During the afternoon, two local Rangitāne leaders will share their views about building meaningful relationships with tangata whenua. Milton Rauhihi and Manu Kawana are Rangitāne descendants active in their iwi affairs. They’ve spent decades learning and preserving their traditional tribal knowledge, including raising their own children and grandchildren as confident speakers of te reo Māori and kaitiaki of their traditional ways. This is an opportunity to engage with tangata whenua.
If you are wanting to strengthen pedagogical relationships to people and place in line with Māori aspirations then you will benefit by attending this day.
