Education Gazette’s final centenary edition

Education Gazette | Tukutuku Kōrero has published its fourth and final centenary edition as part of its special series to mark 100 years of publication.

The latest issue of Education Gazette features schools in Nelson, the South Island’s West Coast, Ruatoria on the North Island’s East Coast, Auckland, and inner city Wellington.

It also includes a story about the development of our national curriculum and another about Te Kura Pounamu (The Correspondence School), which is on the cusp of its own centenary. These articles join the many stories shared in the Gazette this year as part of its special centenary series.

Over the past year, the Gazette has visited schools, kura and early learning centres all over Aotearoa New Zealand.

From the Far North to Rakiura | Stewart Island, the Gazette team has engaged with learners, teachers and principals, support staff, parents and whānau, hapū and iwi, boards of trustees, and people from the community, hearing about their pasts and their visions for the future.

Guided by the whakataukī 'ka mua, ka muri – walking backwards into the future', the Gazette’s centenary series has attempted to share these stories of change and provide a glimpse into the opportunities, challenges and aspirations of our communities.

The Education Gazette is very different to what it was 100 years ago.

Today it is a multi-media publication, with its own website(external link), YouTube channel(external link), podcast account(external link), Instagram account(external link) and e-editions,(external link) in addition to its 100-year-old print magazine.
