Learning outcomes

The learning outcome for this project was that all students at secondary level learn how a paiere is built on our island Mitiaro.

At the end of the project, it is fair to say that all students learned many things about the building of a paiere Nukuroa. We would like to add that seven students were able to further share their learning with the students of the Cook Islands at the Education for Sustainable Development Conference held in Rarotonga in June 2010.

During this project we were able to integrate the Cook Island Maori Culture, Technology, Languages (Cook Islands Maori and English), Social Sciences and Science curriculum.
