Manaiakalani Staff Meetings 2022

Staff Meetings Home

Each term the Manaiakalani Kahui Ako hosts staff meetings as an opportunity for our people to continue to connect with our Kaupapa and Pedagogy. Often these staff meetings are led in individual schools and sometimes all schools come together. 

Term 4: 10+ Years of Cybersmart Learning

Manaiakalani Staff Meeting (Term 4 2022)

Term 3: Connected Learners Share

The Manaiakalani pedagogy and kaupapa has harnessed the instinct to share and make connections with fellow human beings in a purposeful way to support academic success of our young people and in the important areas of citizenship and well being.

Participant Feedback

"Huge thanks to you & your team.  One of the best workshops I've sat in for culturally responsive practice"

" Our facilitator did a fabulous job...welcoming, friendly and funny...kept us on task, covered all the questions and included everyone in a kind way."

"The Share Staff Meeting was a definite highlight of my week"

"Our facilitator was kind and inclusive and thoughtful. It was a worthwhile experience..."

This year we  harnessed the affordances of technology and our network of connected learning communities across New Zealand.  Teachers (including principals and other educators on staff) were invited to to register for ONE of two facilitated online sessions in Google Meet.

Small groups were formed in response to curriculum level and Teaching as Inquiry topics. This was an opportunity to connect and share strategies with educators who have been focussing on similar achievement challenges. 

This session was designed to be conversational... No screen sharing or presentations and no recording of the Meet.

Term 2: Hanga - Creativity Empowers Learning

Celebrating The Arts/Ngā Toi - Dance, Drama, Music, and the Visual Arts. Including how The Arts are integrated to engage with learning across the curriculum. In recognition of  Ngā Mata o te Ariki, we also welcome create breakouts that celebrate Matariki and Aotearoa New Zealand’s first official year of national celebration.
