Waitangi Day - February 6 2017

26/01/17

Waitangi Day is widely recognised as New Zealand's national day; it is an occasion for reflecting on the Treaty and its place in Aotearoa today.

"Ko ngā pae tawhiti whāia kia tata, ko ngā pae tata, whakamaua kia tina."

"The potential for tomorrow depends on what we do today."

Waitangi Day provides an opportunity for students to examine the social sciences concepts of cultural identity, place and environment, and continuity and change. It is also a useful context to explore values such as diversity, equity, and respect, and to develop key competencies such as thinking and participating and contributing.

The resources on this page encourage you to consider how Waitangi Day can be celebrated with your students and the wider community, and how you can use the Treaty of Waitangi principle as a foundation of curriculum decision making at your school.
