Teacher Training Colleges throughout the country now have special programmes on aspects Māori and Polynesian cultures. In the past, the emphasis was on the Māori and Polynesians as they are. Today they look at many facets, especially the living culture richness it offers our nation.

Students were there for two days in preparation for a weeklong stay at Tukaki Marae in the Bay of Plenty. During the poroporoaki, students expressed what they had gained from their two-day visit.
