Hangaia te Urupounamu Pāngarau Mō Tātou

Ngāi Tahu kaumatua Laurie Loper established the James Stewart Loper Bequest to accelerate progress on equity and excellence in education through the use of best evidence about teaching, learning and professional learning.

Ko te kaumatua o Ngāi Tahu, a, Laurie Loper, i whakatu te tono a James Stewart Loper ki te whakatinana i te ahunga whakamua i runga i te tika me te hiranga i te mātauranga ma te whakamahi i ngā kōrero pai mō te whakaako, te ako me te ako ngaio tanga.

The James Stewart Loper Bequest enabled Shirley Primary School to access the expertise of Associate Professor Bobbie Hunter, senior mentor, Trevor Bills, and others from the Massey University team to implement the pedagogy featured in BES Exemplar 1. This culturally responsive pedagogy accelerates progress in mathematics education and supports student collaboration and wellbeing.

Ko te James Stewart Loper i whakawhiwhia ki a te Kura Tuatahi o Shirley ki te uru atu ki te tohungatanga o te Ahorangi Tūhono Bobbie Hunter, te kaiwhakaako matua o Trevor Bills me ētahi atu mai i te whānau no te Whare Wānanga o Massey, ki te whakatinana i te whakaakoranga i roto i te Hei Kete Raukura: Tauira 1. Ko tēnei whakaakoranga ahurea e tino whakatere ana i te ahunga whakamua i roto i te mātauranga pāngarau. E tautoko ana hoki i te mahi tahi a ngā ākonga me te waiora.

The bequest has been administered through a partnership between Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Massey University, Shirley Primary School, the Iterative Best Evidence Synthesis (BES) Programme।Hei Kete Raukura and the Christchurch Regional Office of the Ministry of Education.  The Minister of Education joined Hangaia Te Urupounamu Pāngarau Mō Tātou partners to celebrate the bequest on the 21st June 2016.

Ko te tono i whakahaerehia na roto i te mahi ngātahi i waenganui i te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, te Whare Wānanga o Massey, Te Kura Tuatahi o Shirley, te Whakaaetanga Whakaaturanga Katoa (BES) (Hei Kete Raukura) me te Tari Takiwā o Ōtautahi, o te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga. I uru atu te Minita o te Mātauranga ki a Hangaia Te Urupounamu Pāngarau mō tātou o nga hoa ki te whakanui i te tono i te 21 o Pipiri 2016.

The senior leadership team began preparing for this opportunity in mid-2015 and staff returned from holidays early to start their professional learning on 28th January 2016. Shirley Primary School generously allowed filming very early in the change process in May 2016.

I tīmata te kapa o ngā kaihautū matua ki te whakarite mō tēnei whai hua i te waenganui o te tau 2015, a, kā hoki mai ana ngā kaimahi mai i te hararei ki te tīmata i tā rātou akoranga ngaio i te 28 o Kohi Tātea o te tau 2016. He pai te whakaaetanga a te Kura Tuatahi o Shirley i te tukanga o te huringa i te marama o Haratua 2016.

This video provides an introduction to the nature of this best evidence in action from the perspective of the kaumatua, the school leadership, teachers, students, board of trustees and whānau. The video allows us to hear from Ngāi Tahu learners how big the change has been from their perspective.

Koinei te ataata e whakaatu ana i te ahua o ngā taunakitanga pai i roto i ngā mahi a te kaumātua, te kaiārahi o te kura, ngā kaiako, ngā ākonga, te poari, me te whānau. Kā taea e te ataata te whakarongo mai i ngā ākonga a Ngāi Tahu e pa ana te nui o te huringa mai i o rātau tirohanga.
