Two wānanga over two days, presented by Maria Sydney and Emma Parangi 

Te Tiriti-centered leadership in ECE

Tues 20 September, 9am-2pm

Aotearoa is on a journey towards the true enactment of partnership between tangata whenua and tangata tiriti. This is being reflected for us in education, with a new history curriculum which includes the many narratives of our motu.

As each of us navigate these waves of change it is integral for us as kaiārahi (leaders) in ECE to deepen and strengthen our knowledge and delivery of te tiriti centred leadership.

During this wānanga we will explore a range of whakaaro and strategies for kaiarahi to understand how they can fulfil their commitment within the partnership between tangata whenua and tangata tiriti.

He Wānanga o te Ao Māori

Wed 21 September, 9am-2pm

Te Ao Māori encompasses the entire world, through the lens of Tangata Whenua. Beyond this, Māori are not a homogenous group, so different iwi and hapū hold different perspectives based in their unique whakapapa and histories.

As kaiako, understanding an entire world view can seem daunting, let alone knowing how to apply these ways of knowing and being to our practice. This is exactly what Te Whāriki asks us to do, so let’s explore some ways forward together. We start with Papatūānuku, and create some foundations.

This wānanga will be a sharing of whakaaro and tikanga central to te ao Māori through a series of teachings which are accessible and open to all kaiako. Connections will be made to processes of pepeha, te maramataka and Māori measures of time, ngā Atua Māori, te reo Māori me ngā tikanga, and of course how each of these is integral to our enactment of Te Whāriki

  • $140pp per wānanga
  • $260pp to attend both
