Today I would like to discuss the work of REAP the Rural Education Activities Programme. REAP provide various educational support to the communities in and around the Far North area. They offer support to schools, Adult community education, early childhood and Te Kōhanga Reo centres. road safety, parenting. AA vehicle and driver licensing as well as youth development. AS well they also support te reo Māori for children, families and teachers. There is a lot of te reo Māori workshops/courses to go to.
Peter Visser is one of the Kaitautoko Mātauranga here. I have had the privilege to go to some of Peter’s workshops and workshops organised by him they have been great. He does a great ukelele workshop and the children just love his music workshops with them too. Peter and his team provide Professional Development for ECE teachers. Te Kōhanga Reo kaiako and families within the Far North areas. Workshops are sometimes held in Kaitaia, Kerikeri and Kaikohe. I would recommend talking to Peter and his team at REAP to see what there is to support you or your team. Peter does send out regular emails with upcoming professional development to those on his email list. Check out the REAP website. I hope this information is useful to you.
Have a good day.
