Huinga Ako

Our new afterschool program Huinga Ako is a Pou Kohikohinga Māori - Māori Collection Specialist lead session that assists students with finding resources that link to their Te Ao Māori focused assignments.

With the new histories curriculum coming into effect this year, Christchurch City Libraries has noticed an increase in assignments with a Te Ao Māori focus. We have pulled together our resources and expertise to create a free drop-in research session for students wanting that extra assistance for their assignments.

This program is held twice a month - one session in Tūranga, and one session in a community library.
