Keep on eye out on edSpace, Facebook and Twitter, and make sure you join the conversations and feel free to share your views below.

      At my centre I did Waitangi today. I was very busy however my colleagues were very happy with the outcome. We had the children painting and colouring feathers which we will later add the children's aspirations onto then join them all together to make a korowai. We read and talked about Sharon Holts Waitangi book. Then the children helped me write a new treaty for our centre, which we all signed and the younger
      children put their finger prints on. While signing with a feather pen the children all wore a puipui. The children loved it and it was the same as Sharon's book.

        Hi Gayle, thank you for sharing, it sounds like you've bought te tiriti alive for your young learners in 2018. Can't think of a better way to get involved than using the arts. Would love to see a photo if you have any to share? smiley
