He Pī Ka Rere introduction wānanga ki Whanganui

In November, Toi Tangata Kaiārahi, Darrio Penetito-Hemara, held a He Pī Ka Rere introduction wānanga in Whanganui for the interested early learning environments.

The wānanga was an opportunity to showcase how the He Pī Ka Rere approach can be implemented in an early learning environment. We were lucky enough to have indoor and outdoor settings to showcase the many variations of activities that are suitable for any environment.

The wānanga had a combination of Kindergartens, Kōhanga Reo, and Daycares who were able to bring their expertise to the table. We at Toi Tangata also view every wānanga as a learning experience for ourselves so a big mihi to all the attendees and the mātauranga they shared.

He Pī Ka Rere is a kaupapa Māori physical activity and nutrition approach to nurture and develop the whole being of a tamaiti in Kaupapa Māori Early Learning Environments (KMELE). Based on traditional techniques used by our tūpuna combined with a need to supply our tamariki with the abilities, skills and awareness to lead a lifelong relationship with kori (movement) and kai (nutrition).
