PLD with Hinekoia Tomlinson – Waiata Māori in the classroom

September 8, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Waiata Māori are for everyone to enjoy! Waiata Māori are a great way to learn te reo (the language), and to engage with te ao Māori (the Māori world view). As teachers living and working in Aotearoa, we have the unique opportunity to tautoko the Māori community by promoting the use of waiata Māori within our respective classrooms. This hui will offer practical suggestions and recommended resources to help facilitate these objectives. Nau mai haere mai ki tēnei hui nui whakaharahara!


This PLD will also be offered in Regional Hubs, so that teachers can come together to enjoy some food and engage with the hui collectively.

Register here to receive the ZOOM link. Note that the ZOOM session is available to MENZA members, but all are welcome at the Regional Hubs.
