Hauora and Learning Success Tools for Māori Boys

Professional development (PD) New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 14 January 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9qBL

Jon Winder is supporting the national imperative for the well-being and academic success of our Māori boys through this powerful workshop that has already had high reviews. Jon has worked in a number of Māori and state schools in this field and has close ties with Māori elders. Underpinning this hui is the awareness that Te Ao Māori (Māori world view) has much to offer education in its holistic approach.

This workshop uses a strength-based inquiry approach, recognising innate ability naturally occurring in the DNA of the learner. Following Kaupapa Māori approaches, Jon support teachers to help Māori boys reclaim their mauri, mana and whakapapa to their own cultural identity, knowing that in this viewpoint, all things are interconnected, including relationships to whānau, whenua and their learning pathways. This viewpoint allows all to see the interconnection with each other and our relationship to the environment.

Outcomes from this Kaupapa include:                                              

  • How to apply Sir Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā model to your school
  • Supporting boys to express their learning physically, emotionally and mentally, and spiritually
  • Practical ways whānau and school can work together in this process
  • Understanding contexts of learning that work for Māori boys
  • Using the science to know how boys succeed at school and what inspires boys to succeed in life
  • Knowing the value of learning by doing, in groups, using each other’s knowledge
  • Using the senses and seeing the interconnections between things
  • Reclaiming the ways Māori elders learnt, linking traditional ways of learning to modern contexts
