Logo for Pareāwaha

Pareāwaha is a series of online conversations and PLD opportunities for members to share knowledge and innovative practice.

Why Pareāwaha?
Pareāwaha comes from the song Kauaka Toihau hei pare a waha. Pareāwaha literally means word of mouth and more particularly in this case, the message which should have been delivered in person came via an emissary. Pare as in tipare – an adornment, a poetic adornment, a gift delivered by word of mouth, not in person.

Pareāwaha is a revival of the name used for the NZEI Te Riu Roa Miro Māori newsletter from 1994 – 1998. This newsletter shared successful kaupapa Māori programmes and Māori educational achievement. Local stories were written in both Te Reo Māori and English.
