Tūhuratia te Iho Pūmanawa
"In te reo Māori Tūhura means to discover, disclose, bring to light, unearth, investigate and explore.
Pūmanawa / iho pūmanawa translates as ‘talent / cleverness / abilities’, but also has a meaning of ‘heart beat’.
It’s about seeing the whole child for who they are, without limiting judgements based on bias / race, leading to negative expectations.
These workshops are a ‘call to people’ to pay attention to, and have regard for, the talents of the child and to create opportunities to express those talents - again free from prejudice.
Using Tūhura for this kaupapa means we can also speak to the kaiako / teacher. By exposing / exploring / shining a light on the bias and teacher expectations - but at the same time talking to the talent / cleverness / abilities of the tamariki / learners that are at the heart of the kaupapa!
It’s also about kaiako learning how to uncover / discover the tools and practices that help them create high expectations for their learners to achieve remarkable outcomes."
