Māori medium education
Tom Alesana struggled at times at high school.
Switching from a community that acknowledged and understood his Māori world view, to a much larger school with a curriculum that often didn’t, was not always easy, he said.
“You become quite insular and you don’t share, and you don’t put yourself out there.”
Alesana – now a teacher at his former intermediate school in Nelson – was excited that that was set to change.
