Aotearoa New Zealand histories and Te Takanga o te Wā

Survey responses now being considered

Ka nui ngā mihi ki te tini, ki te mano, koutou i tuku whakaaro mai mō te marau ā-motu.

Thank you to the thousands of people who shared your thoughts on Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories draft curriculum content and the related changes to Te Takanga o te Wā.

Consultation is now closed.

We have received 4523 responses to the public survey and received 357 items of feedback from schools and kura where teachers have tested the use of the content in the classrooms.

This large amount of feedback provides us with a wealth of information that will be independently analysed to identify the key themes that will set the direction for the final curriculum content. The size and shape of the changes to the draft content will depend on the feedback and analysis.

The finalised content will be ready in time for schools and kura to develop their local curriculums and marau ā-kura for history from 2022.

The work on Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories and Te Takanga o te Wā is being followed by work to refresh all areas of the curriculum.
