  • Connecting and reconnecting with colleagues across Aotearoa
  • Engaging with a team to uncover and bring to light inspirational learning resources
  • Developing programmes of learning that you will confidently take into your classroom and use immediately

Hei te 21 tae atu ki te 23 o ngā rā o Paengawhawha 2021, ka tū tētahi hui mā ngā pouako hangarau matihiko i roto i ngā kura arareo Māori o Aotearoa.

  • Ka tirohia ngā rauemi pāhekoheko, hei tautoko i tāu mahi whakaako i ia rā, i ia rā.
  • Ka whakarongo ki ngā mātanga hangarau matihiko.
  • Ka mahi tahi me ō hoa pouako e whai ana i te huarahi hangarau matihiko. 
  • Ka mahi tahi kia pakari ai tō ngakau titikaha i tēnei mahi hangarau matihiko.

E 3 ngā rā o te wānanga nei me ōna wāhanga katoa. Mā te uru, mā te mahi hoki e whakangungu ai, e whakapakari ai ō pūkenga pouako hei painga mō āu ākonga.

Nā reira, inā he take nui te whakaako hangarau matihiko, tēnā, nau mai haere mai ki tēnei wānanga mo kura arareo Māori.
