|Design thinking with Māori students||Dev Singh is currently implementing a new initiative for Māori students called design thinking .||Students will be talking to Ngati whatua and identifying issues that they may have/see around Auckland- Dev and children will then research and come back, working with iwi to come up with a prototype to solve a problem.|
|General business||Whānau hui once a term
Other discussion notes:
· Te Tiriti: teaching it through the 3 P’s rather than basics- that way students can connect more to it. A way that everyone can connect with.
· Students have found something to belong to when they were unsure of their identity before.
· Need to highlight what we are doing at CPDS to encourage belonging
· Embedding tikanga Māori in your school is all part and parcel and where it all begins
· Teachers: be an agent of change, upskill if possible, empower yourself so you can empower the kids.
· Teach Hauora – well being through the model of Te Whare Tapa Wha
