No.5 Café & Larder, 248 State Highway 51, Hastings, 4180 (free parking onsite)

This brand-new EXPLORE workshop is for all teachers at primary and secondary school level who wish to extend their understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, to enhance and provide a bi-cultural learning environment for students in Aotearoa.  

An understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the Treaty) is critical to working effectively within the education setting and classrooms in Aotearoa. Gaining an appreciation of the context, intentions and on-going significance of the Treaty enables teachers to recognise its applicability to their lives and work.   

This one-day workshop provides participants with an understanding of why we have a Treaty, what it says, colonisation and its impacts, and current Treaty issues.  

It also provides an opportunity to briefly consider personal responses and actions as a classroom teacher. 

Who Should Attend

This workshop is open to all primary, intermediate and secondary teachers of all languages and to DPs and HoDs.
