Wellington Teachers Training College Māori Club.
Kaikōrero: Barry Mitcalfe speaks with Wiremu Parker about the Wellington
Teachers College's Māori Club. Barry is in charge of the Māori Department.
He says the 110 strong club only has 10 Māori students currently and there is a lot of concern about the decline in numbers of Māori students currently attending Wellington Teachers' Training College.
Waiata-a-ringa: He rourou ma koutou.
Barry Mitcalfe explains how the trainee teachers make field trips to Māori regions to get experience teaching Māori students. He says most of the students come from the Wellington region and need to get experience in country schools and in Māori communities.
The students of the college perform their own setting of "E tipu e rea."
Some groups of students went to the Far North in the holidays. Several unidentified female students talk about their positive experiences in Te Tai Tokerau.
Waiata-a-ringa: Aue ha, haere mai nga iwi o te motu.
Other students studied former pa and midden sites. Leo Fowler interviews Barry Mitcalfe and some male students about this archaeological work in Doubtless Bay and Herekino Harbour. They talk about the support they received in this work from local elders.
Waiata-a-ringa: Kua rongo rongo
Barry Mitcalfe talks about Mr and Mrs Rameka at Te Hapua who shared a lot of local information with the students. Students also comment about their time at Ahipara and how they were welcomed by the community.
Waiata: E waka e.
A female student talks about the need for school trips to be organised for Māori students in isolated communities, who have never experienced city life.
Waiata: Utaina mai
