NZ Association for Research in Education (NZARE) Conference

THREE Events

  1. 9.00-10.00: Kia Aroha College Warrior-Researchers’ Keynote:

  2. 10.30-12.00: Symposium: Te Ao o Atareta (Atareta’s World) How ready is the world for transformation? (Three generations of our whānau presenting together: with Dr Keri Milne-Ihimaera & Kahurangi Milne)

  3. 3.00-3.45: Keynote Panel Reflections (Panel Member)


Education in Aotearoa is undergoing a much needed paradigm shift. Research is playing a key role in facilitating that shift. By highlighting the flexibility, versatility, speed and agility with which creative minds, spirits, and bodies living and playing in today’s education setting are able to co-construct our tomorrows, our shared visions, hopes and dreams. That is the stuff of transformation. Just like our ancestor Māui who was able to create land, transform ways of being, slow down the sun, and even bravely challenge the cycles of life and death, we too have to continue to be brave, risky and revolutionary in order to collaboratively shape and reshape thinking, futures, and the ‘good’ life of all members of our societies.

Waikato-Tainui Kawenata Schools' Hui

Keynote Speaker
THEME:  Mahia te mahi  (Just do it!) 

Today, Te Puea Herangi's words "Mahia te mahi" would roughly translate into "Just do it!"  And in the spirit of this koorero, the theme for the upcoming Kawenata hui is based on activation.  We are keen to see our Kawenata partnership shift up a gear, with a deliberate focus on key actions that collectively will make the most difference for Waikato-Tainui learners, and all learners, in your school.
