    I had the priviledge of attending this conference with Ruta and like Ruta, was challenged to think about Pasifika students currently in New Zealand education contexts. A real challenge for NZ teachers is to engage with or use the prior cultural experiences of students. For example, I had never thought that writing a sermon would be so similar to the structure of writing a research report until listening to one of the presentations. Thanks for your reflections Ruta. You pose very real issues and cultural insights.

    Hi. Can you tell me who wrote this. For my appraisal in ECE I am researching how to support Pasifika tamaiti to transition successfully to school. In my reflection I want to include this blog but can’t see the author or date. Many thank s
