Acknowledgment

Adapted by Paul Keown from the table on page 30 of P. Keown, L. Parker, and S. Tiakiwai (2005). Final Report on Values in the New Zealand Curriculum. Unpublished research report for the Ministry of Education by the Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research and the Ministry of Education.

The Values section of the The New Zealand Curriculum suggests that the ways in which the values are expressed "will be guided by dialogue between the school and its community". Your school and community, in association with local iwi and hapū or other cultural groups in the school, may wish to add further notions, concepts, and ideas to the right-hand column that are consistent with the values or value clusters of the curriculum.
