Creating Culturally Responsive schools

arrow_downward

Do you feel you could be catering more effectively for the different cultures in your classroom? Not sure where to start? Come and learn from those who have taught in bicultural and/or culturally diverse settings what will work for you as well. This action-packed workshop will give you lots of ideas and strategies for ensuring you connect with, support and fully engage the learners and whānau from all cultures in your setting. A particular focus will be on Māori and Pasifika learners but ideas and resources will be applicable to many different contexts. 

Learning outcomes

  • evaluate current practices and pedagogy and learn about more culturally responsive practices
  • learn practical ways in which your school might effectively reflect the bicultural heritage of Aotearoa
  • learn about ways to meaningfully engage with and create partnerships with students, whānau and the wider community.

How to get there, and carparking

There are a number of car parking options at the Wellington venue:

  • Hill Street Car Park:
    The Hill Street car park is 100 metres down the hill from the entrance to Guildford Terrace. It is directly under the Catholic Centre. Please note it is Early Bird parking only ($13 per day, cash only). There are 44 casual parks but it does fill quickly so if you want to get a park you will need to arrive early (between 7.30am to 7.45am).
  • Ballantrae Place Car Park:
    The Ballantrae car park is directly under the motorway. The best way to go to this car park is to come down Bowen Street from Tinakori Road and turn left into Ballantrae Place. Car parking here is $16 for the day. You pay by the hour and it appears to be coin operated. Again we recommend you get there as early as possible to get a park. There is a pedestrian walkway that runs from Ballantrae Place to Hill Street, a small climb on the way up but very easy coming down.
