To date, it has been schools that have mostly determined the way that they interact with whānau. Research and experience now shows that this needs to change so that whānau can take a more active role in shaping this relationship.
Kia ora. In this section of the site, you can find practical information and resources to support Māori learners. All the resources are available from the Ministry of Education and New Zealand education sector sites.
We have organised the content collections using a “layers of influence” approach. These “layers of influence” shape the conditions in which Māori learn and can have an impact on learners enjoying and achieving educational success as Māori. The layers are: the Crown, iwi, whānau, school leaders, teachers and students.
Student learning can take place in many settings, not just the school context.
Whānau have a central role in the education of their tamariki and mokopuna, bringing a wealth of unique insights, views and relationships to their learning. Whānau can contribute to school curriculum design, learning at home and in a range of other learning contexts.
The tools in this kete have been created by those who work with schools to improve their relationships with whānau, hapū and iwi.
