Wānaka Mātauraka – Māori Education Conference 2007
Wānaka Mātauraka is a Māori Education Conference where people who are directly involved with Māori learners and/or Te Reo Māori from Ōtautahi come together. This was an inspiring and informative event including quality presentations, guest speakers, and a strong focus on the Ōtautahi and Te Wai Pounamu contexts for Māori learners. Find out what people are doing that is making a positive difference, what resources are available and who are involved with Māori education initiatives in our community. The discussion from the Wānaka will contribute to identifying local priorities for future regional Māori education activities.
This is an initiative led by several of the Christchurch Rūnanga of Ngāi Tahu with the support of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, the Ministry of Education and the School of Māori, Social & Cultural Studies in Education – University of Canterbury.
The Wānaka is an ideal forum for teachers of Te Reo Māori, RTMs, kaiako, Māori educationalists, hauora specialists, Rūnanga and iwi education representatives, Māori working in government departments with an interest in Māori education outcomes, Māori lecturers, Māori leaders/kaumatua etc. Enquiries can be directed to Melanie Riwai-Couch – contact details are below.
