He Kākano Communiqué 31 – Wednesday 21 August, 2013

21 August 2013

E kore au e ngaro – he kākano au i  ruia mai i Rangiātea 

I will never be lost – for I am a seed that was sewn in Rangiātea

Kia ora anō koutou katoa,

The two conferences are nearly on us, so this Communiqué (and the next one) is devoted to details about each one. 

CONTENT

1.    He  Kākano Conference – ‘Kia Puāwai Te Kākano – Celebrating Potential’

North Island Programme – programme details below

South Island Programme – programme details below 

2.    How to prepare for the conference – details next week. 

We want both conferences to give participating He Kākano school leaders opportunities to:

  • Celebrate their progress over the last three years
  • Acknowledge the positive learnings
  • Share what they have learned
  • Confirm good practices
  • Encourage ‘spread’
  • Build on sustainable practices and processes
  • Plan for the future. 

To do this, we have asked you, the leaders, to be the main drivers of the different conference sessions. There will be a pōwhiri on the Sunday followed by one or two speakers (North Island Conference) or a panel of speakers representing iwi and school leaders discussing iwi, hapū and whānau engagement (South Island Conference). Four of the following seven sessions will each have a panel of four ‘Presenters’ from different regions and schools. Each panel will focus on different elements of He Kākano Self Review Indicators framework – Positioning/Repositioning, Inquiring, Co-constructing and Engaging. These sessions will be about schools ‘telling their story’, by leaders (not necessarily the Principals) explaining in a bit more depth how their schools have addressed the particular focus of the session. 

Two of the seven sessions (‘Kohikohia Whakaaro’ or ‘Gather Your Thoughts’) will be led by ‘Coordinators’ whose role is to each guide discussions on different topics (like the ‘Round Table’ discussions at the wānanga). However, these topics have been arranged like ‘speed dating’ exercises, so that every participant will be able to input and extract ideas at a fast clip (again, like the ‘Bus Stop’ exercises in the wānanga).  All participants will be given the list of topics before they come to the conferences, so they can at least ask for answers from their school colleagues to questions they are not sure about. Then all they need to do for the ‘Kohikohia Whakaaro’ sessions is turn up with their ideas. 

The final session 7 in the North Island will include the panel of iwi and school leaders followed by thoughts from former He Kākano participant leaders (if they are available) via an ‘interview’ process. In the South Island, session 7 will involve a speaker on behalf of iwi discussing strategic relationships with schools. 

All sessions and outcomes of the sessions will be recorded and made available to every participant – hopefully before they leave. Baz Caitcheon will again be filming the different sessions and interviewing people at every opportunity. If you haven’t had an opportunity to look at the March conference video clips, you can access them via Vimeo. Simply Google our website and they will take you to the Vimeo clips – or go straight to Vimeo He Kākano conference2013 site. 

See you at the conference(s)! 

Mauri ora, 

Kind regards
