Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu Whānau Ora Symposium 2018
21-23 March 2018, Marlborough Convention Centre, Blenheim
Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu, the Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency for the South Island, acknowledges the enormity of the impacts still felt by those who endured the massive 6.2 aftershocks on 22 February 2011.
‘It Takes a Village’ is a Whānau Ora based concept focused on increasing Māori engagement in learning in an authentic Maori environment. Te Pā o Rakaihautu have developed the project which involves the establishment of a Pā Wānanga (A Māori based learning village) in the North-East of Ōtautahi.
The premiere of documentary “Tell Me I Can’t” airs in Christchurch tonight and details the journey of rangitahi taking part in the unique initiative ‘Bros For Change’.
