The foundation to learning about another culture is first to build or deepen your connection with your own. Whakawhanaungatanga is central to this. Join us in a waananga to explore whakapapa, pepeha and belonging. Learn ways of connecting to your pepeha in a way that upholds the mana of who you are, whilst honouring the unique place of Māori as tangata whenua.
Explore ways we, as kaiako, can strengthen the weave of te ao Māori in narrative assessment. We will draw from the ancestral wisdom of pūrakau Māori and share stories that inspire, affirm and celebrate te mana o te tamaiti. Connections will be made between Learning Stories and how we effectively weave the richness of identity, language and culture into our narrative assessments and beyond.
It is integral for us as leaders in ECE to deepen and strengthen our knowledge and delivery of te tiriti-centred leadership, in order to enact and remain true to Te Whāriki, our bicultural curriculum. Join Maria in a full-day waananga exploring what it means to be an effective, impactful leader in your place. Sit alongside other leaders and draw from the kōrero and insights shared.
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 including: deepening understanding of Māori models of leadership, leading in a mana-enhancing way, tīkanga Māori, ways of effectively working alongside local iwi and hapū, broadening competence and understanding of Māori ways of knowing, being and doing to strengthen overall bicultural leadership and practice.
