Our ‘E Pai Ana Koe? E Pai Ana!/You Good? You Good!’ programme

Professional development (PD) New Zealand (nationwide)

Notice reference #: 1HAggJ

Our ‘E Pai Ana Koe? E Pai Ana!/You Good? You Good!’ programme training begins on Tuesday 11 June, and we’d love to see all teachers of Y5–8 there. A perfect professional development opportunity over three consecutive Tuesday afternoons.

Designed in partnership with Maori and Pacific educators, our YGYG programme uses an approach that interweaves Te Ao Māori, neuroscience and embodied learning activities. It incorporates Dr Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Wha model, promoting physical, spiritual, and mental wellbeing and family, and participating kaiako/teachers will leave our workshops more able to provide a consistent model for students to look after their own wellbeing based on Te Ao Maori insights on hauora and whakataukī.

We will cover:

  • Promoting personal wellbeing
  • Managing anxiety
  • Self-calming techniques
  • Promoting upstanding behaviour.

Participants of this course can expect:

  • Insights into language patterns to improve behaviour, learning and communication; 
  • Explanations of the structure of the brain and a neuroscience context for understanding student behaviour.
  • Small group mahi and experiential activities to provide ākonga with a better understanding of their well-being and how to manage it.
  • Facilitated discussion to feel more agentic in supporting students who may not realise they can impact their own well-being.
  • Practical and drama-based activities with discussion opportunities to keep learning interactive. 

Part 1 - Tuesday 11 June, 3:30–5pm
Part 2 - Tuesday 18 June, 3:30–5pm
Part 3 - Tuesday 25 June 3:30–5pm

We welcome individual teachers to book in for professional development, as well as staff groups. This programme is suitable for Y5–8 teachers, school leadership and support staff, social workers, and social service agencies.

Cost is $395pp for the 3-part training, with discounts for groups of 3 or more.
