Wharehoka Wano

Tauatanga - traditional word for rangatira - passing the mantle on to the up and coming.

Pouwhirinaki - being supported and supportive of our colleagues

No Taranaki i a ia.

Te Whiti O Rongomai raua ko Tohu Kākahi

When we get those little blue eyed Māori kids rocking the haka stage we need to be aware not to mske assumptions in our classes. TAUTOKO!!

What does succession look like in your school?

Love the idea of fixed term leadership positions to enable growing of leaders. Shared leadership idea. Flattening out of leadership role. Less hierarchical.

How might we change the way we create succession and strategic plans in our schools?

Leaders don't lead from the front - they lead from the side. Interesting whakaaro.

You're not a classroom teacher - you're a school teacher.

Dynamic around BOTs from Tomorrow Schools - changing roles.

Succession means that you're able to transform teachers.
