New website on TKI: Waitangi 175


A new website Waitangi 175 has been launched to commemorate 175 years since the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi next year. The site will enable teachers, principals, boards, and their communities to develop a range of teaching and learning programmes that can link to New Zealand's history, civics, citizenship, and nationhood. Schools will also be able to share what they are doing to commemorate the 175th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.
