'looking at education with a Māori lens'
An education symposium hosted by iwi in Whakatū Nelson next week aims to address racism in schools and promote excellence for Māori students.
The event, called Kia wetewetea, ko Māui ahau! which translates to, Loosen me, for I am Māui! is being held at the Trafalgar Centre in Nelson next Friday.
It's aimed at teachers, whānau and anyone with an interest in inspiring excellence for Māori students and influencing change in the education sector.
Whakatū-based teacher and education facilitator Vanya George (Ngāti Kuia, Rangitāne o Wairau, Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō, Te Ātiawa o te Waka-a-Māui, Ngāti Rārua) said the event will be a platform for iwi education experts and will help meet the needs of the education sector.
