The things that matter most, must never be at the mercy of things that matter least. Because the main thing, is to keep the main thing... the main thing.

 Stephen R. Covey

I'm feeling extremely lucky and privileged to be a part of the foundation Tōnui Collab team. I'm very fortunate to be among such amazing people who I learn so much from every. single. day.

 

There are a number of things that fill my excitement and passion bags. If I had to choose something besides my family...I enjoy seeing children in that "penny drop" moment where they learn something utterly new and amazing and seeing that smile that is generated from pure understanding. It's awesome. 

What's your favourite workshop at Tōnui Collab and why?
My favourite workshop is definitely Scratch coding. It's amazing how creative the children can be and utilising it to share something near and dear to them (their pepeha) is a double whammy in terms of seeing and identifying their successes. I don't tire of seeing the different ways that our children present their heritages through coding.
