Ngā mihi mahana ki a koe
Last year was surreal. Intertwined with the chaos and distress was resilience, kindness and togetherness. These past few months, I have found myself often thinking of the whakataukī “Kia whakatōmuri te haere whakamua” (I walk backwards into the future with my eyes fixed on the past).
Although we don’t know what’s in store for us in 2021 and though we walk in somewhat blindly, we are heartened that the profession walks with strength and steadiness, bringing the experience and knowledge gained in 2020.
I hope you can take time to enjoy and celebrate the smiling faces, the ‘a-ha!’ moments, the growth and discovery that awaits you and your learners this year.
