PPTA President Angela Roberts' address to the Annual Conference of the New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association / Te Wehengarua (PPTA).
E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā hau e whā. Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.
Kia Orana, Talofa lava. Taloha Ni, Fakaalofa lahi atu, Ni sa bula vinaka, Malo e lelei.
Greetings to you all on this great Wellington day.
As a teacher of the Arts, it is usual for me to turn to Vincent van Gogh - he once said:
The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
And that’s us – we can never forget that the political context in which we work is often stormy and dangerous but we have to venture out anyway.
I am going to talk more about the political water later, but I want to start by reflecting on the decisions made at last year's conference and how they have charted our activities over the last year.
