University of Winnipeg student’s blogpost on Otago


Anna Huard and pupils from te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ōtepoti.

Dunedin might be at the “bottom of the world” but we still have people prepared to make their way down here.  One such person was Anna Huard, a second-year student in the University of Winnipeg’s MDP (Master’s in Development Practice) programme.  While here Anna spent time at Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ōtepoti, and with people from Te Tumu.  Click here to read about her experiences at Otago from the “University of Winnipeg’s MDP students blogging from the field” site.
