Waka Tīwai

Learning together

Waka Tīwai were every-day waka. They were used often and were ideal for moving small groups of people – like our regional network hui. They were also used for recreation, which reflects our desire to enjoy what we are participating in.

Waka Tīwai supports the growth of regional networks for educators enabling them to network and collaborate together as a community of learners, growing regional capability to meet the needs of gifted learners. The regional network consists of face to face hui and online collaboration and are focused on practical support for classroom practice.

Waka Tīwai networks are in operation in the following regions: Auckland, Bay of Plenty, Canterbury, Manawatu, Northland, Taranaki, Waikato, Wakatipu & Wellington.
