Toi Tangata CEO Megan Tunks and He Pī Ka Rere leader
Darrio Penetito-Hemara were in Tauranga alongside Ata Ruawai and Dillon Te Kani this week.
Ata works in the under-fives space and Dillon is a representative for The Bay of Plenty District Health Board (BOPDHB). The group were part of the panel, tasked with selecting a He Pī Ka Rere facilitator in the region. The project is a joint project between Toi Tangata, the BOPDHB through Toi Te Ora.
He Pī Ka Rere is a kaupapa Māori physical activity and nutrition approach, which nurtures and develops the whole being of a tamaiti in an early learning environment aimed at informing both kaiako and tamariki of the role that traditional activity plays in the growth and development of a child.
If any Kohanga or Māori focused ECC in the Waiariki or Bay of Plenty area are interested in He Pī Ka Rere workshops, tēnā whakapā atu ki a Darrio.
