Waka Ama is a waka that requires an outrigger to keep balanced and afloat. Waka Ama provides access to Kaiārahi (leaders) in gifted education who provide on-the-spot support to educators and co-ordinators with an immediate need or query.

Our gifted education specialists are available to personally respond to your queries, challenges or concerns. Read through their bios and decide who best fits your needs in your current situation. Then email your query, challenge or concern to your chosen expert with "Gifted Aotearoa: Waka Ama" in the subject line. She will respond to you personally. Go on ... Sue, Brooke and Rosemary are ready to help you now! 

All questions and answers are edited for anonymity and suitability, then published to the Gifted Community on TKI so that everybody can benefit. Click on over to see the Waka Ama Q and As at date.
