for Māori students
An education symposium hosted by iwi in Whakatū this month hopes to be “the first step in a new chapter in celebrating and promoting educational excellence for Māori”.
‘Kia wetewetea, ko Māui ahau!’ is the first symposium of its kind to be held in Te Tauihu.
Organised by Te Kāhui Mātauranga o Te Tauihu o te Waka-a-Māui, a collective of the eight iwi of Te Tauihu formed in 2019 to work alongside the education sector, it is targeted towards “teachers, whānau and anyone with an interest in inspiring excellence for Māori students and influencing change”.
