nzmaths: Take This


From toy cars and trucks and things that go, to a bag of groceries, a quilt, and much more, this collection of resources is based on the idea that you can 'take something' and use it as a context to capture the interest of students.

Each Take This is a single page of springboard ideas designed to flexibly connect mathematics across the strands, and to be adapted for your students.

English language learning progressions (ELLP) support tool


A new interactive resource has been developed to support teachers using the English Language Learning Progressions (ELLP) matrices and other key ESOL documents for teaching and planning.

My education, my voice: Youth Advisory Group and Online Youth Forum


A Youth Advisory Group and Online Youth Forum have been set up so that young people between the ages of 14 and 18 have the opportunity to have a say about education in New Zealand.

Twelve young New Zealanders have been selected to take part in the 2018 Ministerial Youth Advisory Group and all 14-18 year olds can take part in the Online Youth Forum.

You can sign up at any time, so spread the word and get your friends involved too.

You don’t have to be a student to sign up for the Online Youth Forum.

If you sign up to be part of the online youth forum, you will be invited to discuss and test the insights gathered from the young people in the Youth Advisory Group.

A wide range of perspectives and ideas is welcome and there is no limit on the number of people in the online forum.

Sign up online.
