Cultural Sustainability

By Judy Bruce

New school builds, rebuilds and redevelopments all offer tremendous opportunities to vision and revision in ways that honor Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

In the Change Kete excerpt attached, we have curated some useful resources for you and your team. The kete has been designed to provide guidance and support as you journey through a visioning or revisioning process. The resource provides ideas to support you on your bicultural journey.  The ideas and resources are in response to key questions such as: 

1. How do, or might, you actively engage with mana whenua to inform all aspects of learning and design?

2. How are you developing and communicating a shared understanding of Māori tikanga/protocols, with a particular focus on mana whenua engagement?

3. How do, or might, you demonstrate New Zealand’s bi-cultural heritage through your physical and pedagogical learning environment?
