What people say
Manaaki Tāpoi implemented relationships-based pedagogies that respond to Māori values and knowledge. The course content included; a sense of competence and achievement, self exploration, cultural identity, supportive social interaction with peers and adults, challenging and rewarding physical activity, meaningful participation in the Māori community, routine limits and structure and diversity of experience.
It was empowering for those who may have always considered themselves disadvantaged, non-achievers and dislocated. When students looked at their strengths, they were often amazed to discover how resilient, adaptive and innovative they were.
