Tēnā koutou katoa, Talofa lava, Kia orana, Mālō e lelei, Fakaalofa lahi atu, Namaste, Mālō ni, Fakatalofa atu, Halo ola keta, Mauri and warm Pasifika greetings to you all.

The Hui Fono is a unique space that brings together Māori and Pasifika working in adult and community education.  The purpose of Hui Fono is to provide a space for professional learning, for and by Māori and Pasifika.

Planning is underway for the Hui Fono 2020. 

Hui Fono 2019

The theme for Hui Fono 2019 was Islands in the S.T.R.E.A.M.

The education sector is all about it, the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. AND because we're islanders we had to add the R in there to be different but seriously, relationships are fundamental too.

The theme uncovered the fundamental subject areas of science, technology, relationships, engineering, arts and mathematics in education, making it explicit in Māori and Pasifika knowledge and practice.

A key objective for the Hui Fono is to help our community and whanau understand what STEM/STEMM/STEAM/STREAM is as subjects, and locate each subject area in a cultural context, give an experience of it in action, and to encourage ideas for informing changed (improved) teaching and learning practice.
