The Northland Age - - Local News -

Indige­nous teach­ers from around New Zealand and Aus­tralia, mem­bers of Te Akatea Maori Prin­ci­pals’ As­so­ci­a­tion and the Na­tional Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­ders Prin­ci­pals’ As­so­ci­a­tion, gath­ered at Wai­tangi yes­ter­day for a three-day con­fer­ence. Te Kura o Otan­garei prin­ci­pal and Te Akatea pres­i­dent Myles Fer­ris said the idea was to learn from one an­other. “The shared knowl­edge con­cept is re­ally im­por­tant to us,” he said. “We don’t know ev­ery­thing about indige­nous ed­u­ca­tion, and we look at what they’re do­ing and see a lot of things we can bring into our schools.”
