Event description

Description

Presenter: Irene Paleai-Foroti

We are fortunate to have secured another opportunity in Manukau for exploration of Tapasā, and we warmly welcome you to join us at this workshop.

Tapasā is a resource for all teachers of Pacific learners. It is designed to support teachers to become more culturally aware, confident and competent when engaging with Pacific learners and their parents, families and communities. It aims to contextualise quality teaching and planning within a Pacific learner setting by providing a Pacific lens to the Standards for the Teaching Profession and the Code of Professional Responsibility. Tapasā is the first step in an ongoing development journey to better understand the identity, language and culture of Pacific people, to connect, collaborate, and co-construct teaching and learning with Pacific children, young people, their parents, families and communities.

Irene will be focusing on this document from mainly a Samoan perspective and also for ECE sector.

About the presenter:

Irene was born in Samoa and migrated to New Zealand with her husband and two boys. She was a Secondary school teacher for 11 years in Samoa before her family moved to New Zealand. Irene’s involvement in her younger son’s early childhood education at Tu Manu ae le Tu Logologo Aoga Amata has shifted her passion to the significance of providing a solid foundation for our young children. She graduated from the University of Auckland with her Master’s degree in Education and has been a lecturer at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in the School of Education for seven years. She is currently working as an ECE lecturer at the New Zealand School of Education while also in her initial stage of her PhD studies at the University of Auckland. Her research interests lie in the area of early childhood education, Pasifika education, language maintenance and partnership with parents and communities.

You are welcome to join us for light refreshments from 6.30 pm. The presentation will start at 7 pm.
