About the event
It might be the last day of MHAW, but today’s the day to reflect on what you’ve learnt throughout the week and implement those tools into the weekend and weeks beyond.
Evidence suggests that learning or trying new things creates a sense of achievement, competence and stimulates engagement with the world around us. There are lots of ways that you can Keep Learning today and every day.
A few ideas to help you keep learning:
- Join a class or group – learn an instrument, join a book club or put on your dancing shoes and learn some new moves. Not only will you learn an impressive new skill, you’ll get to connect with new people too.
- Organise a lunch and learn session with your hoamahi. Arrange for a speaker to come in, or ask a colleague to present on a topic that they are interested in.
- Learn something new about your hometown or local area – talk to your whānau and neighbours, check out local history societies, pukapuka/books, plaques or do an online rangahau/search.
- Is there a new skill you’d like to develop or a hobby you’re interested in taking up? Take the first step by watching a YouTube tutorial or playing a kōnae ipurangi/podcast you’ve been meaning to listen to.
- Make a list of pukapuka you’d like to read and aim to read one new thing a month. Pick something off your list and start reading it today!
- Look up a new recipe and have a go at making it. Get your mates or whānau over to enjoy your creation.
- Put up post-it notes of kupu hou/new words around your whare or office to help you learn Te Reo Māori. Help tamariki learn te reo greetings with the Kei Te Pēhea Koe activity from Sparklers.
- Do some puzzles! Crosswords, sudoku, riddles are all great ways to exercise the mind.
- Ask tamariki to teach you about something new they learnt at school today.
