Outdoor learning - a Māori perspective


Are delighted to present

A presentation and workshop by Dr J Ihirangi Heke

Thursday 2nd October at 2.00pm in Tollymore National Outdoor Centre, Bryansford, Co. Down

Dr. Ihi Heke is a Maori health & physical activity consultant from New Zealand


Dr Heke has lectured in the School of Physical Education at the University of Otago, Prince Sultan University in Saudia Arabia and the Wananga o Raukawa (Māori University).

Dr Heke is also a consultant to the New Zealand Academy of Sport and he believes it is time to reassess both physical education and outdoor education processes in New Zealand to include a much higher level of indigenous Māori related information.

This presentation will provide examples of environmentally based physical education, outdoor education and exercise psychology from an indigenous Māori perspective. Both pre-European and contemporary interpretations of the New Zealand environment will highlight the range of training opportunities that exist.

There is no charge for this event and tea coffee and cake can be purchased on site for £2.00
