What does Te Tiriti o Waitangi look like in your school?

What does Te Tiriti o Waitangi look like in your school?
7 February
 Public discussion Created by CORE Education

Some school has just started back (some students yet to return) and Waitangi day has come and gone, but the essence and wairua of our nation's most important treaty; still remains an important reminder for everything we do in our classrooms, schools and kura,to create a better bi-cultural Aotearoa.

If you want to dive deeper into this kaupapa and address or affirm an inclusive culture in your school, then there are around 50 or so rich, thought-provoking videos in EDtalks where educators discuss what matters most for our Māori students and their community. These are a great way to initiate conversations around bi-culturalism and multi-culturalism. Here a just couple of examples to share.
