The Trust intends holding a Wānanga in late March and is seeking expressions of interest from school students who may be interested in attending.
Location: Te Awahohonu Forest – Te Haroto.
Date: 25th-27th March 2020. This will include two nights sleeping at the Toropapa Huts.
Age of Tamariki: Intermediate or high School students.
Eligibility: Must whakapapa to Te Awahohonu Forest Trust or Ngati Hineuru
There will be no cost for the student to attend this course.
This will be a great opportunity for some of our tamariki to connect to their whenua and its history.
The majority of the Wānanga will be hosted by ‘Young Animators Education’ who will run a workshop that introduces the students to some of the resources needed to excel in the digital world of today. Students will prepare a basic animation during the course. You can visit their website at younganimators.net. for more information.
Topics to be covered:
The first two days will focus on the story of Tane-o-Kura. This will allow the tamariki to connect to the Toropapa stream and learn about conservation measures of the past. ‘Young Animators Education’ will work with the tamariki to create an animated version of the Tane-o-Kura story (or their own conservation project).
On the Thursday night, it is planned that Piripi Smith will talk to the tamariki about the stars and how they connect to our whenua.
Friday will involve the story of how Tarawera got its name and the symbolism within the name for us today. This story will be depicted in mahi toi with the guardians by Phil Belcher. There will be an option for students to produce a carving during the course instead of an animated story.
