He Kakano – Live to Learn

He Kakano – Live to Learn

He Kakano – Live to Learn is a co-design framework to create learning environments that meet the needs and aspirations of Māori. It seeks to create a blueprint for change for a national education system that improves hauora Māori. He Kakano is also facilitating the re-design of curriculum and pedagogy, including alignment with current Māori-specific NZQA national standards.

The flagship has been developed in partnership between Toi Tangata, Healthy Families Manukau, Manurewa-Papakura, and Manurewa High School.

The next step is to see the framework adopted in all schools across South Auckland, and a community of practice to support, guide and advocate for the development of this kaupapa is being formed.

If you are a marae, a community organisation or a school interested in joining a community of practice or learning more about this approach for your kura, we would love to hear from you.
