In February of this year the government announced a refresh of the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa
The refresh will better support teachers to design relevant and exciting learning experiences and make a positive difference for learners, whānau and communities. The refresh is scheduled to take place over the next five years so that the curriculum is bicultural, inclusive, and easier to use. It will also be clearer and more consistent for teachers and kaiako
Esa Samani, will keynote our HOD & MU holders day being held this year at Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau on Friday May 21. Esa will update us on this mahi and what it means for the learning area of mathematics and statistics and how we can be involved.
Esa thrives on growing people to bring about transformational change in education. A former Deputy Principal and Head of Mathematics, she now manages the refresh of the New Zealand Curriculum at the Ministry of Education. She speaks fluent Samoan and conversational Te Reo Māori and ensures her unique cultural perspective is brought to the fore in her work.
