Te Whāriki - By Us, For Us, About Us
Brenda Soutar, Mana Tamariki 

ELP Lecture Series 2020 February Lecture  

"Competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society." 

How can our ways of knowing, being and doing authentically reflect this aspiration we have for children in Aotearoa?

Brenda is Ngāti Porou and Ngāti Awa. She is former Kaitiaki (Tumuaki/Senior Teacher) at Te Kōhanga Reo o Mana Tamariki and current Tumuaki Rīwhi (Principal) at Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Mana Tamariki Y1–13. Brenda has three adult children and six grandchildren. She is most proud of the fact that all of her grandchildren are being raised by their parents with te reo Māori as their first language.
