Ka Hikitia - renewed strategy released

09/09/13

The Ministry of Education has released a second iteration of its Māori education strategy called Ka Hikitia – Accelerating Success 2013–2017.

This updated strategy aims to rapidly change how the education system performs so that all Māori students gain the skills, qualifications and knowledge they need to enjoy and achieve education success as Māori.

Ka Hikitia – Accelerating Success 2013–2017 is a revised strategy, not a brand new one. Its predecessor, Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success 2008–2012, set the direction for improving how the education system performs for Māori students.

The revised strategy builds on the changes and success we have seen through Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success 2008–2012. It celebrates success and accelerates the pace for more of it.

Conservation Week: 8 - 15 September

Conservation Week is run by the Department of Conservation each year to raise awareness of the benefits of conservation, and to encourage people to get involved. This year’s theme is ‘Celebrate Conservation Week! What’s your whānau doing?’ The aim of the special week is to get families and friends together to experience and care for the natural environment.

For schools, Conservation Week provides an opportunity to explore the living world strand of the science curriculum, the concepts of place and environment in the social sciences curriculum, the future focus issue of sustainability, and values such as community and participation, and care for the environment.

Here is a collection of ideas and resources to support your participation in Conservation Week.
